Alright I'm confused. Ihave a 90 Celica GTS and I want to swap from auto to manuel. I have searched treads and still alittle foggy. Alll i want to know is if the tranny out of the v6 camry will bolt up to the 5S i have now. if so what years tranny would be the best and would I need to swap ecu or it doesn't matter.

You'll need the tranny, axels, shift lines.. no ECU as it's not a new engine. Not sure what else you'll need. Probably transmission mounts. It'd really be useless to get a v6 tranny, unless you have one already.

i believe you do need a new ecu..

Well what i picked up in the search was the v6 Camry was the ideal tranny to use when doing a 3s swap due to the lsd. Once I get some things paid off I am going to swap to a 3s. Figured that I might as well get the right tranny now.

Hah, or what you could do is use your existing tranny, and buy the engine now, and when you find it time.. you can get the other tranny. :)
