just wondering about conversions for 5 spds for 504's, I am in the process of putting a fuego 5spd into my R17. I have had to modify (i.e. bash holes) the transmission tunnel to allow the 5spd box to fit in.
Is it better to start with the automatic optioned 504 if wanting to convert to a 5spd or does the 4spd version have enuf room under the floor already?
The good bit about just using the manual pug would be having the pedal box already I guess. Also I notice that Dave Mcbean makes mention of using a BA10 5spd- has anyone used a celica 5spd box over there, or with the BA10 does it mean you then don't have to modify the tailshaft etc?? is the BA10 5spd only availabel in 505's.
Thanks for any advice....(ps I don't have a pug just storing all this info away till I can get back to RWD fun again....)
Ps there is a really tidy 604, metallic gold down the road for $900 o.n.o (NZ$)
