I have this 91 SVX that a customer does not want to fix. The transmission is gone, to rebuild it will cost too much. I would like to put a manual in the car as it is in fair shape with only 160 k miles. So.. if anyone has a 91 manual SVX that can do without it's transmission / shfiter / cables, let me know. Wiserdave@hotmail.com or call me at Autobahn Automotive (919) 878 - 6191.

Also, the SVX was not sold until 92 so I'm assuming this one was made in 91 but is a 92. Going to a manual changes the whole car. IMO not for the better. It would cost probably about the same as a rebuilt tranny would but then the conversion would have been done for the future.

5-speed tranny swaps use the legacy/wrx/etc tranny....not sure of the nomenclature.
