VL 5.0 EFI Coversion with VR Clubsport

I've just bought a vr clubsport whole running car to use as my donor car for my vl Calais 5.0 conversion and want to know if the vr v8 power steering rack will fit with little mods and if so will I be able to fit pacemaker or the standard hsv extractors?

I had a read of the efi conversion thread but was getting mixed messages.

The other thing I wanted to know is can I take just the manual vr pedal for the t5 off and put it on my standard vl n/a pedal box with not mods?

Thanks

I should be able to just take the pedal from the vr clubby pedal box and put it on my vl pedal box shouldn't I? I'm sure the actual pedal will have the same mounting point!?

I've got a vq rack in my vl. No probs there.
I used a set of pacies on mine too.
The factory hsv headers will fit just fine
