    Pedal box.


    Gear linkage & associated. (includes cutting a hole i believe as auto hole is smaller or in different place).


    Clutch master cylinder


    Clutch line.


    Gearbox.


    Flywheel.


    Clutch.


    Auto to manual gearbox conversion mount.


    ECU? Not sure on this but not sure how much the auto stuff is plumbed into the ECU.


    I decided against it in the end, as the gains on a 1.5 would be pointless. I'm enjoying the ridiculously slow cruising ease of the autospastic. :Smile:
