If by 6 speed you mean a Getrag V160, those are pretty much unobtainable. If you mean a T56 Magnum, that is definitely a possibility... you can even get a sequential if you're so inclined. Minor mods to make it fit.

I am just astonished how overpriced the getrag is. When I had my soarer a decent rhd supra was 10K. i have had a hand in a few 7mgte swaps and while i love the LS +t56, i would stay with a 1j and be happy with a reliable sub 400 hp car.
Prices are what they are for the V160 because new transmissions or new parts for them no longer exist. As for the T56, I was referring to mating it to a 2JZ - see Lexus IS300 T56 Magnum-F swap kit (GR700-GR900-GR1000-GR1000F) 2JZ Altezza TR6060. If the V160 in my race car called it quits, that is the route I'd go (for reliability with a sub-400 hp car).
