i have a auto 2002 Celica GT-S, i think its kinda slow from the starting line, some people told me to sell it and get a manual one, but i prefer to switch its transmission to maual, can anyone tell if it is possible or not...

anythings possible with money =0)

Easiest way would be to go to the dealer and trade it!

pluto is currently doing this. Do a search and you'll find his post where he lists all the parts needed for the conversion.

Yes, it is possible, very possible...

Just an idea, if you are going to actually pay all the money to do a conversion, why not get a 6 speed instead of the 5 speed that normally comes in the GT? European Celica GT's actually come with 6 speed transmitions, so even if the US GTS 6 speed doesnt bolt up, Toyota does make one that will bolt up. Good idea, no? :thumbup:

Think its good idea, I hope it works for you:thumbup:

If you start to really add up what it would cost it's cheaper to just trade in, then you'll still have a warranty too. I just traded in my auto GT-S for a stick and it is a completely different car altogether with a stick, the auto trans was in no way designed for the car and the way it drives really shows.

hi everybody, thanx for all your replies, can anyone tell me what the proximate costs will be if i am really doing that though, thanks a lot.

It's going to cost you way more than it's worth to swap out the transmission. Your best bet is to get a GTS 6 speed. It's the most cost effective.
