    Is it possible to convert a ST245 to manual?
    Will ST215 parts fit without modification?
    What about parts from ST185?
    Worth doing?

    I don't know much about that model of Caldina, but a friend of mine swapped that engine (3SGTE) into an SW20 MR2 and used a manual gearbox out of a Camry. (E153)... his car is really light and quick!

    i think swapping to manual is almost always worth it... i believe it frees up some hp...

    A lot of work. Read about it recently on another forum. Maybe performance forums or the caldina forum. The person had to get conversation parts feom NZ and took 3-6months waiting on parts to complete the conversion.
    I cant recall where I read it, but did happen across it recently.
