if you converted your sportshift GTS to a six speed CLICK HERE!

hi all,

i am one of the many unfortunate souls who drive an auto gts. in thinking of what my next mod should be, i thought that a transmission swap would give me the most gains and potential. what are the things i would need to do to get this done? how much will it cost? and how does a swap affect the car in the long run? no flames please ... thanks in advance!

there are people on the "other" celica site that have done this. i saw prices with install ranging from 1500 to 3000k. if you get parts from someone who wants to sell their tranny, you can get a tranny for like 800 bucks, or you can go find one at a junk yard. if you got most of the parts off a wrecked 6spd GTS you could possibly do it for around 1500-2000 installed. something i am lookin into for myself as well.

yea, changing to a six speed WOULD Mean changing your whole engine...that means you dont know what has gone wrong with the the one youd get, plus the mileage would probably suck...just stick with yours unless you decide to trade in.

umm actually no, you wouldnt have to change the motor. a 6spd tranny mounts up to a motor that had an auto tranny on it the same way. same motors different trannies. you would just have a lot of custom work done to fit the clutch and cutting a hole in the floor for a shifter, and you would have to get a 6spd ecu. theres a long list of things.

IMO just leave it a sportshift or trade it in for a 6 speed.

Ummmmm, if a sequential tranny could be added to our cars, that would be awsome. But could any ECU work with it.

sportshift doesnt mean you can switch gears like a manual, a lot of times the celi wont let you reach certain rpms with the automatic. plus the COOL factor of a manual is a lot better then an auto, lol, if you want it, do it, dont let no one stop you!
