If your intrested .... manual swaps will run around $5-$6k start to finish with tune. Now thats for used items if you want all new ...... $10k ? lol not sure but can look it up for anyone if there seriously intrested. <p>That is for any P2 car with AWD will bring you to manual 6speed AWD. <p>Now for FWD Manual in a P2 like this probally about half of that . <p>Since half the cost on the 6speed swap is the tranny and other parts. <p><br><BR><BR>

My major two issues I am having now is <p>1. Rear engine mount <br>- I need a pic from above and below of a FWD Manula 01-03 car of the rear engine mount. <br>2. Netural Start/ Stop wires. <br>- In the 93-00 cars you connected the Green/redstrip wire and green wire to fool the car into thinking it was in neutral so you could start it . <p>Once I get those two figured out I am golden <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

It really comes in handy especially when you need to make custom subframes and mounting points, etc. My dream is to swap the 2JZ into a 740 (maybe in a few years). It would be one of the ultimate sleeper cars <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

It'd be fun. Engine swaps are chicken soup for the soul.
