    That'd be handy.....thx.
    techworkz automotive in canberra did the diagnose yada yada but sent the gearbox to a mob in sydney.. trying to find the receipt for a shop name, otherwise may be worth just giving techworkz a call.

      They are under $2k for a H6 6 speed. Grab one of them and an auto tailshaft and a hummunbird electronics gps speed signal generator and you are done. A GC8 is not going to go down in value if you look after it.

        Do the H6 boxes bolt up to the ej20? Very interesting

          I thought a different cross member and matching rear diff were needed as well?

            The pre facelift h6 box wants a 3.9:1 diff.

              Any 6 spd swap is going to require matching ratio rear and shafts.

              My 5 spd finally went pop in my 99 a couple of months ago. Cunt of a thing! Just took off normally out of a driveway and it developed a very loud tick tick that sped up with speed but changed down with higher gear. It got worse very very quickly. Ended up being a few smashed teeth in the center diff.

              Got a replacement box for next to nothing and the local mechanic swapped it out for about $600. Was just lucky to have quick access to a box.

              Will start acquiring parts for a 6spd swap very soon. 6 spd liberties regularly come up for 3k complete. Will buy for driveline and sell the rest.

                Getting it towed to this mob and swapping in one of these;

                Seems like a batter option than chancing a second hand box that some swede has flogged.

                  6 speed conversion? good job! if you're keeping the car you won't be sorry. I have a gen 4 liberty one behind my EZ36 with plenty of tourque and it breaks driveshafts before the box has any dramas

                    What's that worth, willsy? Upgrading to R180 too?

                      They're website is fucking weird. That link went somewhere else the other day. I wish I was getting the 6sp......I'm at the opposite end of the price bracket. Standard Box, pulled apart, inspected then screwed back together, using a 2010 gearset.

                      Better than going in blind with a second hand gearbag.
