Gday,talking V6's here. Just wondering if a manual VN gearbox will fit a VR. It's just I'm looking at doing a manual conversion to my VR and can only find manual VN's out there as donors.

Furthermore I asked an ebayer a few questions about a manual gearbox for sale and he said the VR V6 manual and auto engines are different? Is this true?

Many thanks in advance, Conor.

Hi Conor.

The VR auto V6 has an extra sensor on the cam, that the manual V6 doesnt have. The motors are otherwise mechanically the same. You will also need a VR V6 manual ECU & engine wiring harness & just ignore the extra sensor. If your VN donor car

Best off running a VN computer, memcal & harness.

You'll never sort it out otherwise, unless you want to spend big $$ at an auto sparky, and more again on a Memcal re-map.

Cheers,

You can bolt a 5 speed up to an early VN auto engine it's just that the custom flywheel to suit costs ~$450 from CRS.
