I know there has to be a bunch of threads like this but I tried to search the FAQ's but for some reason nothing came up. But anyways how hard is the swap and what are the parts I need? I have done a few auto to standard swaps in other cars. Thanks for your input.

i did it, it was pretty easy. u can leave the auto rear in for a little while so there isnt as much initial cost. if you use the auto rear u just need to get the 1st half of the ds made a little bit loner. it cost me like 90bucks

BL built auto is under 3g......I was looking at swapping untiil I read the article on MKIV.com...there are alot of parts that will probably be next to impossible to find in good shape used so some of those things will have to be bought OEM at Toyota and well my stealership really enjoys taking advantage of that....even from elmhurst or jay's it still wont be cheap.....

How much did it end up costing you?

Average gertrag if lucky is $3,500 just for tranny, not pedals,linkage,master clutch,slave,etc... I've read the swaps are between 5-12k. The Boostlogic Built auto is $1,800 and I know of someone that has it right now putting down just over 600hp and loves it.

i too am interested in this, although if a BL auto is around 1800 i may just end up going that way.
That $1800 does not include a converter. I think the total comes close to $3000 when all is said and done. It's still a lot cheaper than the 6 speed swap.

Doing the swap properly with decent parts (including the rear) will run you north of 7k. There are quite a few items needed for this conversion, namely the most pricey are the V160, rear, and clutch/flywheel setup.

Short listing from the top of my mind: Trans, rear, driveshaft, console, shifer, knob, console plate, tripod, master and slave cylinders, clutch line, clutch pedal assembly and pad, brake pedal assembly, clutch of your choice (300-5000 depending on your needs), flywheel and new flywheel bolts, axles, miscellanous bolts and brackets.

You can see how this quickly adds up. However, I recently did the swap and do not regret it :)
