You are going to let your wife drive a car with a turbo?

And you are wasting your money on an engine when you could be buying stuff for your family?

if you use that blinking search button youll find the answer, but it seems here that if you wanna go 3sgte you go manual. fullstop. unless you got cash to burn to get an auto mated to the motor, gg =)

v6 camry/solara tranny (some of the mr2 dudes recommend that at the m2r forums), but then again that was for a m/t and not an a/t

The easiest way is for you to get an E-153 tranny from a V6 camry or Solara.

The Mr2 tranny can work but you would have to modify it

This whole thread is a slap in the face to the 3sgte. :thumbdown

Letting your wife drive a turbo car with an automatic :disappoin

Should have just supercharged the 5sfe.. would have worked out a lot better, instead of dropping in a 3sgte and finding another tranny for it. :)

I'm sure a shop can do the modifications to the tranny.

If you don't want to deal with the modifications, use a E153 tranny from a V6 Camry/Solara. It bolts up to a 3S-GTE and the shift levers are on the correct side of the tranny for a fwd application.

Go rent a car with a manual tranny and teach your wife how to drive it. Your wife should be able to enjoy the car, and so should you - the best way to do that is with the most efficient and strong tranny available.

Good luck!
