Automatic to manual
Posted 28 December 2014 - 10:05 PM
I just got my first car and its a 260z 2+2 with an L28 engine, its really cool and i love just about everything about it apart from the transmission which is a 3 Speed Automatic.
What steps will i have to take to convert to a manual and is the bolting on the same on the manual as it is for the automatic or will i need to modify the mounting and what not?

Changing from auto to manual is straightforward enough, you've just got to hunt down the necessary parts.
This forum contains the info you need to know.
People are parting out rusty 260 2+2s from time to time, keep an eye out on eBay, Gumtree, this forum etc.
Until you have sourced all the parts for the changeover just keep on enjoying your car, just because it has an auto doesn't mean they don't go well, quite the contrary.

As Gilltech said the conversion is rather straightforward and the instructions and advice are available on this forum.
Can you post a up a few pics of the car and may be start a thread on the conversion.
Enjoy the experience.
