1997 VS Ute series II
looking at a 5 speed conversion for my ute always wanted to do it. finally found a cheapish one in reasonable condition and only 10 minites drive. its on ebay and the ad says t5 conversion to fit vn - vs1. i asked th guy thats selling it but hes taking a while to reply so i thought id ask all you chaps in the mean time and probly get a better explanation. why will it only fit a vs1? (mines a series 2) whats the difference?
