Im thinking possibly a small cut and shut on the shifter hole in the tunnel? if the boxes are physically longer/shorter like a lancer then youll need to make way for the shifter poking through.

thanks for the reply Taz.

Main thing i was worried about is can i go and buy a sigma 5sp or jap 5 spd and bolt it straight up.
Are the blocks the same auto to manual ?

Blocks are different. As you already have an auto block you will need the gearbox, flywheel, clutch and so on off a 2.0 litre motor.
