      Future manual swaps in the s60r

      Hey guys im looking into the future since ill be keeping this car for a very long time. I was wondering if a manual swap is possible in the R. Is it just a matter of swapping transmissions then retrofitting all the mechanical parts or does it require a manual ecu? I know people do manual swaps all the time at VS and TB.

      Thanks for the info

      Some previous thoughts on swaps though going the other way.

      The auto does have an extra ECU module next to the main one... prolly wrong terminology but you know what I mean

      Most of the 850 guys do swaps because it wasn't available state-side. I can't imagine the amount of work and pain it would be to try to do a swap on the S60R... it'd be a whole hell of a lot easier to just buy another R w/ a manual.

      Anything is possible if you want to spend the $$$$$ on it. Personally, I'd suggest just buying yourself a new R instead of putting the cash toward a tranny swap.

      Yes, that sounds more reasonable and cost effective.
