yes, definitely a 5spd manual tranny. only 148,000 original miles so that's why I'm fighting myself on what o do. it's still runs well, so I'm trying o decide if I should just go ahead and rebuild the engine to help if I start to modify thus engine or start buying parts for a swap or save up for the whole clip. I'm very god with mechanical work and electrical is my job so ask I seem to see people having trouble with its all the tools necessary to make it as smith as possible.

3SGTE swap. Only way to go.

Save up for a 3sgte swap and just make sure you stay on top of routine maintenance in the mean time. If you take your time and do it properly, you can have something to really be proud of and enjoy for many years to come.
