Actually it's pretty much the same. I did a Tranny swap on my 4 cyl and used that as a guide when I was looking for parts. I made a thread where I listed everything I needed/wanted and how much it cost me. But off the top of my head I will say.

Shifter assembly with linkages
Clutch master cylinder
slave cylinder
manual Pedal assembly
Clutch and Flywheel (I just went ahead and bought new aftermarket ones) If you have a used clutch, you are probbaly wanna get a new realease bearing. They come with new clutches though.
Transmission, gonna need the tranny mount brackets/assmebly also since it is differen than the automatic one.
I used my stock axles and since you are keeping the 4 I imagine you can also.
I also switched over to an Manual ECU cuz they were so cheap but you don't actually have to.
I didn't use any trim pieces, I just had a custom leather Shift boot made and I got a TRD shift knob. I also got new peda covers cuz my pedals didn't have any and my feet kept slipping off plus the stock rubber ones suck. These are little things you usually don't think about that sap any extra money you have.
If you don't have a tach, you are gonna want to get a new guage cluster also for obvious reasons.

I used www.car-parts.com to find EVERYTHING. The prices were excellent on there. You can do it yourself and use all used parts for like under 1000 dollars. Or you can pay someone and buy a lot of new and aftermarket bull$hit and spend 2300 like I did.

By the way, I have a 2nd gen, not a 3rd gen but it is still basically the same. You are gonna run into some kind of issue or dealy. Be prepared for it. It ALWAYS happens. :thumbdown

here in the gen 3 crowd, we have tachs in all out vehicles... (mine doesnt work) but we have them...

sounds like a good list. slave cyl might be included with your tranny.
you forgot the clutch line.
and you will want to get the clutch AND brake pedals from a std camry.

use all the parts from a 95 camry le 5sfe standard. when you need to go to the autparts store or junkyard, thats what you should be telling them...

Yeah, clutch line is important. I forgot to get that piece and it held me up a couple days. :thumbup:

When converting to manual, go with a new clutch and throwout bearing. You'd rather break in your own clutch instead of something broken into already.

yeah i chose a nice spec stage 3 clutch and fidanza flywheel when doing my conversion. :) stage 3 is too hard for everyday driving though. i just plan to have tons of power eventually...

In no way, shape, or form was I attempting to be snobby. I know I have seen at least three threads on topic and one had a complete list. I even tried to find a few for her.

A noob comes and asks a repeat question and everyone says search. People get offended when you say it to a woman. What the deal? I give up.:confused:

I wasn't stating that you are a noob. I saw that you have over 200 posts. I was merely giving an example. But enough of this. I did not mean to offend anyone and wish to squash the beef if there is any. I'm leaving the subject alone. Once again I apologize.

It was actually this thread that inspired me to do a trans swap and I have never been happier with it. It only cost me about $1350 (after labor and parts). I knoweveryone says you can do it yourself if your good with cars but this was something that I thought was best to have a pro do. So I took it to a mechanic I knew who had done a few trans swaps before and he did it for 650.

Worked like a charm. It really is amazing how much power those 5sfe engines have when most of the power actualy reaches the road. heh heh
