VS Calais Series 2
Hey guys, I've got a 95 vs s-pack sedan with an auto but im thinking of putting a 5 spd manny in it, it looks like theres a lot of room to stuff things up so im asking you guys for some help lol
-For starters the engine in my car is out of a 99 VT so is that series 1 or 2?
-and i've noticed that theres "Getrag" boxes and "T5" gearboxes.. any differences?
-and can i put a gbox from a vn or vp behind the vt engine?
-also do i need to change the diff or recalibrate the speedo or change driveshaft?
i've probs missed heaps of things but yeah, i think you know what im gettin at :)

And is it even worth the trouble? coz my mate has an AU falcon 5spd sedan and its runnin 175rwkw and its all stock, I reckon he's just got that amount of power coz its a manual and not having to put up with auto delay and slop..

thanks guys
-Tom
