    @Nick Mann has converted a few autos to manuals (well, certainly more than one!), hopefully he might be able to weigh in with his experience.

    I can check from my car in few hours, so you just need to know which wires to solder? If i remember right there was also few wires which needs to be connected together.

    That would be great just need to know which wires to connect/ solder for the speedo, I have wired the reverse lights and set up the neutral safety as a kill switch

    What's your chassis number? EC5A 040xxxx or 050xxxx? To my knowledge, those ages do not have a speedo feed on the gearbox - they use shaft sensors to determine gear ratio and speed to pulse the speed signal. I have never auto converted one that young, so I have not got first hand experience, but I heard that you need to wire in cables to near the ecu.

    /edit although reading your post again you say the manual box sensor is only two pin? I've never modified the loom where the auto box had a speedo sensor. Does the loom have an adapter on it between one and the other?

    Hi,

    I converted my EZB auto (2001 facelift) to manual, like Nick said - EZB box has two hall type sensors, not mechanical toothed gear like manuals.

    Solution, wire manual sensor (3pin) directly to gauges or harness behind center console behind stereo.

    Check link i posted, you need to pay OZVR membership to see that post - it has all the details (wire colors etc).
