Hope that helps.

Sticky anyone? This is a great right up and answers many questions anyone may have. I am starting to put my auto/manual swap together now. I hope to get my trany this weekend. I was just wondering you all that were hearing noise out of your trans, were they rebuilt before your install? I plan on rebuiding mine before hand.

Can any of the necessary swap parts be sourced from a 5sp SC300?

And, has anyone used a cable setup for the clutch? I just did a auto-to-manual swap using one on my Mustang and it works great, and is much more simple than a hydraulic setup. I would imagine it would be much less expensive too.

yea, that would probably make a lot of people's lives much easier while trying to hunt down parts for the swap. only problem is everyone's swap is COMPLETELY different.

for one, there are 2 versions of the r154, and each one has to be slightly modified to perfectly fit out center console. some people choose to manipulate the actual shifting linkage, other people try to mess around with the shifter itself. some trannies come with bellhousings, some not. shift forks, some not. slave cylinders, some not. tranny mounts, some not. tranny crossmembers, some not.

and then clutch, flywheel, pressure plate choices, there are thousands of combinations. etc., etc., etc., etc.

i'd go on, but i dont remember all of the little parts i needed. it was just a lot, and no 2 people's tranny swaps are the same.

OH! and some people swap already from manual, and others like me did auto to manual..

WHEW! lots of stuff. a nice plug and play "kit" or parts bundle would be nice, but not likely

ooooooooookay...
after all this time, effort, and fun putting together my 5-speed auto-to-manual swap, 6-speed is on its way!

this thread became sufficiently long and informative for anyone planning an R154 swap, so i dont want to clog it with 6-speed stuff.

new thread JUST about the 6-speed swap:

Hey can anyone help me with the wiring going from a auto to a manual in a 2002?
Got the swap about done but the car is dead. Im guessing i have to jump out the neutral switch. But not sure if there is anything other then that.
Thanks

HKS triple plate. Is like the rattle call we all use to get the snakes to come out and play(i.e. vipers, cobras,Gt500's).
