My question is to anyone that has done a conversion from an automatic to a 6speed.

How hard is it to convert? If anyone has converted, have you experienced any problems?

I am looking to change mine into a sixspeed. I finally decided to keep my car, I just couldnt get rid of it. She just means too much to me!!!:D

My final question.................Does anyone want to swap trannys?
If so please email me

[email protected]

Thanks

Its a little bit more then just swapping tranny's... u got wiring harness to start.... then ECU.... SHIFTER... Tranny... Shifter cover... also the differential and tach and speedo... but the last two are optional... if it doesnt bother u about the PRD12 display or the lower gearing u have using the auto diffrential as the drive shaft bolts up to it... oh yuh u gotta bang the tranny tunnel up a few too so it would clear the tunnel or its gonna knock around..... think thats about it.... thats from what i remember when we did a few of them....

I am very well aware that the A/T is faster, but I really miss shifting. I have alot more fun in a car that is a manual. I am probaly not going to change, because I would rather put that money on an SP57 for my car. There has been a guy that has contacted me, and is interested in swapping. He told me that he really wants a A/T, and would swap his over to my car. So, I guess we will see what happens.

Thanks,
Shane

Manual is a lot more fun then auto. I never did see a point in a high horsepower car like an mkiv that has an auto. Just hit the pedal and hold on.. kinda boring. but then again I am biased :D

As for the conversion, call toyomoto in Miami or contact Adrocktt on here he had some work done at a shop in tampa or near there I believe.. goodluck ;)
