VS V6 Statesman + T5
hi i've just converted my 96 vs v6 statesman to a t5 manual, the only thing i couldn't get hold of was the engine harness, ive managed to get the car to run but it stalls when i come to a stop, no speedo [works with the auto computer but not the manual one] no reverse lights plus the dash engine warning light is on! i cant get hold of a manual harness for a reasonable price [$350 plus] but ive heard that my auto harness can be modified ?? does anyone know if this is possible and who can do it ! or should i keep looking for a manual one? i live near richmond nsw any help would be greatly appreciated cheers

Manual vs s pack
hey mate i recently done my 95 vs. i had all the same problems so you arent alone.
i ran my manual computer and just reved it up while down gearing and that solved my stalling.
i called up an auto elec and he charged me 90 bux to convert my auto loom to manual. and then my speedo worked it stopped stalling and engine light turned off.

great thanks GunnaBeSumthingVP, i sent an email to TRX100 and he suggested that i should get this instead [cause ive already got a manual ecu],

VS ECOTEC T5 SPEED SENSOR WIRING & REVERSE LIGHT WIRING Item number:270656581578, $57.00 + delivery

seems to good be to true, ive never bought anything off ebay and was wondering what you people think of it ? or am i being an idiot and go for it ? he does have a lot of positive feed back but i cant contact him by phone only email
thanks for everyone else's comments and input cheers

mate i bought a converted auto ECU + Wiring off him and works a treat it was seriously plug and play
i had to unplug my old computer plug this in cut 1 wire and join 1 and run 2 wires from my gearbox..
He gives you a full book on wiring with good diagrams..and all wires are labled its easy as...
