4EFTE Transmission Options

Hello to all. I’m in the market for a ‘Better’ trans for my 94 Tercel fitted with a 4EFTE. It has the stock transmission from the tired 3EE that was in from the factory. Could anyone send me a link (if there is one) on what transmissions fit best for the 4EFTE in a Tercel? I heard talks of C-series fitting and bell housing swapping for some. There also may be a six speed option as well? Axle sizes and such as well are appreciated. This car is nothing fancy for track use, just daily driven, but i don’t mind having the better options for future. Thanks in advance.

C52 and C56 trannys are from the 4efte so they'll bolt up to a 5efe. More info is here.

The C60 tranny was the 6 speed and it could be made to work as I vaguely recall?? Sigh as always an exact how to was on "Terecelonline" .... now long gone.

Thank you for this. It was a big help. I was snooping around some of the other forums and found a lot of guys complaining that the 6 speed gear was not all that great of a swap. I don’t want to make things too complicated lol. But I have been back and forth on the idea to see if I like the configuration

I found more info on the C 160.
https://www.ukstarletowners.com/topi...-c160-gearbox/

Lower revs at highway speed and a higher top end but folks say it's a weaker box?? 166 mph top end and a 4.59 final driver ratio. But most likely you'd needed at least 250 hp to take advantage of that?? And "they say" the C 160 box is weaker?? It seems like a bit of hassle for a DD??? A 5 speed that is know to fit seems simpler and more reliable???
