Well i've had an offer I can't refuse on my s13 so its going at the end of the month so i'll be moving over to a black r33 spec 2 turbo auto :(.

Well i'm not a fan of 33's and autos but its cheap and i'm makin a killin on my 13 so I could convert it to a manual and i'm sure i'll grow to like the 33 :)

buy up manual conversion parts lol
Good news! Let me know if you want a hand with the conversion. Did a massive amount of research into converting my first R33 auto to a manual, then some nice french man came along with a wad of cash anbd that was the end of that car ;)

Here is a basic doc I had on my USB Key @ Work but I think i've got some more detailed stuff @ home....


___________________


Gearbox+ bolts

Gearbox crossmember....there r 3 types u need the manual i think... my new gearbox came with 1 fitted so i would say its a manual 1

Manual Propshaft..the front half as the auto 1 will not fit the manual box (thats Fact) you can change the hole lot but that means you'll need the manual diff +?parts? im not sure on that 1

Manual ECU (optional)

Clutch..2nd hand or brand new your choice

Flywheel..2nd hand or brand new your choice + manual bolts

Spigot bush..nightmare 2 get out without the right tools !!! use a bearing puller the sliding hammer type

Remember the good engine needs a spiggot bearing before a manual box is fitted to it, as it was out of an auto????

Pedal box...wrong!!! clutch pedal yes..i found it easy 2 install u need 2 cut a hole in the bulkhead u should have a indent where it goes, the hole is for the clutch master cylinder

Brake pedal...optional...i found this 1 very hard 2 fit, i would just cut the autos 1 to shape as its only the pad thats different

Clutch master cylinder (+all pipework) or just fit a single brake pipe from master 2 slave im told this makes it easier for bleedind the clutch ??

Clutch slave cylinder (and dampner)

Wiring loom from manual gearbox to connect speedo sender, reverse switch, neutral switch.

Gearstick

Gearstick surround

Gearknob

Cup holder (optional to remove power/snow button)

Speedo clocks(optional to remove pndr12 thingy)

I got shot of my auto conversion parts as a complete kit (all the parts in my previous post inc the optional ones) in the summer via ebay for a little over £600. So it should give you an idea of cost. Ebay is the place for parts m8...got some real bargains....

Tip, make sure you get a R33 GTST gearbox, R32 GTST (RB20DET) will fit I understand but it has different ratio (drag guys use it as it has a short 1st gear...). DO NOT GET A GTS manual greabox. ITS *** WEAKER *** ! All other manual R33 GTS parts are good.....

The paint work will come up with some compound and a polish but there is a few dints here and there but the roof needs the most work.
