Hi George,George wrote: ↑Sat Aug 06, 2022 2:21 pmHi Everyone, I am aware this is an old topic and I have read most of the excellent information about converting on this site but it is mostly now dated and so I was hoping to pick up the latest advice from anyone.
Most of the conversion kit suppliers mentioned here no longer supply these kits, the one supplier that I got any sensible information from was Wilkinson's and their price for the Tremec T5 kit and all the other parts needed for the conversion is £10k.
The Driven Man (American Powertrain) is a comparable price when adding in all the other parts needed.
I have also been looking for a used 4 speed Moss KFN box with Laycock de Normanville o/d but when I asked a gearbox specialist how much it would be to refurbish it he said that the parts for these are now obsolete therefore my question is are these parts really obsolete and unavailable because if that is the case then it would only leave the route of a new gearbox.
If anyone here has any helpful advice on either sourcing a new Tremec T5 kit or the 4 speed + o/d I would very much appreciate it.
Many thanks in advance
I'm currently sorting out what I need to do change an S3 auto to manual.
These are all the parts you need. Not shown is the centre console and the leather gear gaiter.
The centre consoles are out of stock everywhere (but would love to be proved wrong).
If I can't find one, I'm planning to make it and then cover it in black leather which a guy in Morton can make for you (he's on Ebay).
Lets know how you get on.
