Holden WB 202 to 308 conversion

Gday all,
Iโ€™m about to convert my wb Ute from 202 trimatic auto to 308 5 speed manual.
Iโ€™ve got a 308 and 5 speed t5 out of a vn v6 commodore. I just wondered what parts Iโ€™d need to convert it and if any modifications needed what would they be? For example machining the input shaft to suit the 308, would it be necessary? Also a rough price.
Cheers ๐Ÿ‘

Hi mate not sure how long the vn v6 will last behind a 308 I think a lot of people used a t5 out of a 6 cylinder falcon instead, I used a supra 5 speed for my ute no issues so far. For the conversion you will need a spigot bush or bearing to suit the input shaft and bell housing to suit and clutch plate for whatever gearbox you go with and you will need a v8 diff and get a tail shaft made up also no idea what all this would cost now as I did my conversion over 10 years ago. Oh and if don't already have a v8 clutch pedal and manual brake pedal you will have to get them also probably other stuff I forgotten but you get an idea.
