    C900 Workshop

  6. Auto to Manual conversion

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Hello, I've found and read the Auto to Manual Conversion PDF doc that's available on the C900 tech forum for performing the swap on a C900 (obviously :roll:). While I understand the fundamentals would be the same to do the swap on a 99, is it as much of a bolt on conversion on the 99 than on...
