heres a list of parts needed to do the swap that i found
clutch master cylinder,
g'box mount and cross members,
gear stick cover,
and if you have a nosey round skylinesdownunder.com theres several people on there that've done the conversion..
Whats wrong with an auto then?
Switchable sports mode, redline every gear, kick down like a mule, never been bounced off the rev limiter, use the switch under the gear selector to drop down a gear quick, no need for clutch upgrades, they are not as bad as the narrow minded people who "dis" em make out.
Nah.... Just kidding! Seriously though, nothing wrong with one at all. Some narrow minded folks will say otherwise but sod them I say! Oil cooler as standard (I think - for the box anyway), simple to use, just watch the fluid! No hassle in and out of gear around town, and, as buster says, no over-revving or abuse of the box (which is a risk in an R32 as due to the car's age someone is bound to have ragged it!).
I say go for it mate, anyone who disses auto's needs a talking to with a big stick (equipped with nail in the end!).
Like any other bit of a car, as long as you look after it properly it'll last forever (and I reckon a manual conversion just wouldn't be worth the cash!).
I've been in Buster's auto R33, and it rips up the road, so don't think auto Skyline's are slow!
I have to agree with you on that front. My 4 door GTS Skyline was a great car although not a turbo model it still shifted, and once up to speed she ran like a dream. The present car although not mine is a GTS-t Auto as you say she doesn't hang around, gos like S**t off a shovel when using the sports mode. can really recommend one wether auto or not . Go on you know it makes sence.
Thanks for your thoughts men, I didnt see Jock in mine either cos he had slipped out the seat I am reliably informed the auto box will take up to 450 bhp, should be enough for most through the rear wheels I reckon
you'd be mad to pass it up on the grounds of it being an auto, show me a standard manual R32 GTS that can take 450 bhp at the wheels and I'll eat my hat. And my shorts (which I've been wearing for 17 hours now!).
