It would be great if someone - who has gone through the experience of
installing a 6 speed in their coupe - would post a definitive list of parts
(with PN's) and procedures required to do the full conversion. Come to think
of it, the same could be done for hub conversions and brake conversions,
among other things. I would do it if I had the experience and the time, but
I haven't even had the chance to do a full write-up of my own project yet!
