Hey guys,

Love my e-gear G but also miss the manual shifting experience since selling my last Viper.

Am thinking hard about a conversion to manual. I have a great shop in mind that will do it and am about to schedule it.

Are there any Phoenix-area manual G owners (pre-LP) that would be willing to let me try one out before I take the plunge?

And yes, some will say to just sell the e-gear and get a manual, but I love mine too much to sell. It's set up perfectly and don't want to take a chance on another one. I will have this one for life so am not worried about resale at all, even though I think that conversions will actually add value.

Let me know!

Thanks, Drew

Drew,

Contact HadleyG, he has a sweet gated 06..may take you for a ride in it

Also who's gonna do the conversion? Dallas performance has done a few but it's expensive..around 20k

Toolie - thanks for the info. I sent PM's to you and HadleyG. Hopefully he'll let me go for a quick joy ride.......[IMG class=inlineimg]/vbforum/images_ltalk/smilies/eek.gif[/IMG]

Dallas Performance quoted me $25K which is ridiculous. They told me that they just finished a conversion for a Phoenix owner recently, so maybe he's online to share the result. I'm sure it was done well.

I'll share more details about my shop once I get into the project, but they will do it for about much less using new OEM parts. I've worked with them before and they are awesome.

Also will sell my removed e-gear parts for credit, so the overall project will be reasonable.

Cool, so around $15k much better. My guy at HBI was offering this before for a limited time, but that price is very good.

Bummer...no responses yet for me to blatantly joy ride someone else’s 6-speed...lol.

And so it begins... laid down the deposit to convert and will be getting her done. Will take pics along the way and document the build. This is going to be a blast.

I got your back. When do you want to drive it? I had left toe surgery on Friday to remove a broken stingray barb that was unknowingly lodged in my bone for the last three weeks (you can't make this stuff up), but the boot comes off tomorrow so i should be back to three-pedal action within a few days. Name the time!

Sorry to hear about that stingray hit... ouch.

Thanks for the offer and will definitely take you up on it! Figure you may be ready to roll by this weekend? I’m in the Gilbert area.

Big shout out to Scott for letting me take his gated G out on the open roads this AM!

Felt awesome to row through the gears and get the feel of a manual G for the first time. Makes me even more excited to get mine back from conversion...probably another 2-3 weeks.

Thanks again Scott, and take care of that foot!
