I'm thinking of converting my GT to a 6 speed. What parts will I need to make this work? Also, if anyone has a 5 speed trans for 2000 and up celica for sale PM me with what you have. Thanks!

One other who has done the swap has said there is very little improvement in acceleration and ends up shifting more often. The only benefit will be improved gas mileage since 5th and 6th are overdrive.

5th isnt overdrive....

Anyway, are you already a manual? If so, the only thing you will need is the tranny since everything else goes right together. If not, you are going to need a lot....maybe someone else can jump in here with this, but obviously you will need the tranny, clutch lines, clutch-brake-gas pedal assembly, manual shift box with shifter, linkages from the box to the tranny, manual ecu....i dont really know what else, but im sure im leaving stuff out.


off topic, but why is this in the forced induction/nitrous area anyway?

What you need a 6 speed for? If you need a 6 speed, that means you race. If you race, get a turbo just like im doing and you'll kick ass better than just a six speed.

Im spending like 4500 in the next 2 weeks. im excited but im gonna be broke as ****.

5th and 6th are both overdrive from what I understand

I always thought anything with a ratio less than 1:1 is considered an overdrive gear. Both 4th and 5th are on a GTS.

1gear: 3.166:1
2gear: 2.050:1
3gear: 1.481:1
4gear: 1.166:1
5gear: 0.916:1
6gear: 0.725:1

Final: 4.529:1

1. If he keeps flushing, the water will go down and enable him to breathe, therefore he will not drown.

2. Shouldn't this be :moved: to another forum?
