You don't NEED to swap the tranny, but I'd highly recommend it. 6spd-> :bigthumbu

Good place to get the motor/tranny is from a junkyard. Find a wrecked low mileage corolla/matrix SRS or celi GTS.

Yeap, that pretty much sums it up. Let us know how it goes.

You can also get the JDM version from places like venus-auto.com

I agree with T-Spoon and Tweak.

the gears are a tad longer in the 5spd tranny.. if you kept the 5spd tranny, when you shifted, it'd be way harder to shift into lift..
