    Thanks aidil & arif for being there for the whole day.
    Aidil, u r sooo fast upload everything,he.

    Conversion started at 11.30AM, completed at 8.30PM.
    We tried to do the conversion so it will be as close as to original manual car.
    A few small showstopper, but we manage to overcome it.

    To those who are still 50/50 in converting manual box, dont wait bro...go for it :top:

    12 hour after conversion,
    think that a short/quick shifter will be nice...
