I'm doing the auto to 5-speed swap on my 4th gen. I'll be putting in a tranny from a 89 GT-S, solved the "starter on the wrong side" issue by running a Camry tubular manifold. I know its a relatively weak transmission but its been freshly rebuilt and I got it basically free. The problem I'm having is finding a 4th gen in the yards that have the shift linkages still attached.
I have, however, found 5th and 6th gen GT's in the yards that still have their cables. Will these cables work my older s52? I really don't want to have to buy these cables from my parts guys. Even at my cost they are more expensive by themselves than the rest of the swap combined.
The reason I wonder is because my transmission has the cable hold downs cast into it and the only other Celica transmission I've seen up close ('94 ST) had a separate stamped steel hold down.
