    The guys over at C-VR4 have started hassling a company in NZ to translate the Japanese turbo version of the work shop manual in to english, but they need 150 people to sign a petition before they do anything.

    This is the link so get your asses over there and get signing!

    Guys i have just bought a manual on CD in english online. When I get it I will let you know if it is any good and can make copies for a hell of a lot less than $99NZ. Basically cover postage and cd costs :)

    Err Steve Ian actually found this and told CVR4 about it... ;)

    As I stated in that thread, I'm uncertain if the manual they're talking about is actually for the 6A13TT or not, as it only lists the 6A13 variant... I emailed them a couple of days ago but am yet to get a response.

    Jase can you post the link for that? I'd like to see what it has to say...

    If you get it and it IS what we're after, I'm happy to put a copy up online as I've done for CAPS and the Japanese workshop manual :)

    Yea if neither option plays out I've got a Japanese guy in the states who will do the translation for me, but it will cost a few k... I've had quotes anywhere from $24k to $180,000!!! I haven't pinned this particular guy down on price yet as I'm not sure we'll need it, but he indicated thousands in the range of four digits, not five.

    Just got a reply from Jason's eBay seller - he assures me the manual is for the 6A13TT... so guess we can just wait and see :)

    That's great news. Any idea on how big the file is on the cd? I'll start enquiring about printing one up on Monday.

    Those prices for translation are absolutly out of control, I am sure I could walk up to a Japanese kid in Adelaide Uni and give him $50 to do it hell most Uni students would do it for a hot meal, if this CD is no good

    Its over 1000 pages, with approximately 140,000 Japanese words with 45% repetition. Like I said, I've had quotes from 20k to 180k and everywhere in between, still getting quotes coming in every day. Its a BIG job, make no mistake. Download it and take a look, if you like :)

    No dude, AUD... And scarily, if we don't find another option I've been working out how we can afford to get it done with the cost around $20k. But hopefully we won't have to go down that road!

    I remember having pay $1500 for a copy of the Silvia manual on disc not too many years ago. I guess if you gotta pay 20k you wanna sell the copies for enough to get ya $$$ back.

    Having said that, I am pretty confident that the CD I have coming will be exactly what we need. Fingers crossed
