well....

The same engines would apply regardless of what tranny you have.
But a manual tranny better than a slo-matic, which is i guess why everyone would be talking about them.
If i were you id swap the tranny along w/ the engine :thumbup:

ewww sorry but an auto with a 4e would be garbage unless u could get a 4spd auto but i think it would still be garbage. Auto sucks for these cars man go manual!

What?? Are you MAD??? A 4EFTE in ANY transmission trim will be BETTER THAN a 3E-E any day of the week.

JDM 4EFTE - 135hp
JDM 5EFE - 100HP
JDM 5EFHE - 110hp

dotmrep, the engines you listed, are they easy to install or do you need to modify the car.

Not really, just tedious from what I observed. The right tools make it faster also. Kene is near you, check him out for help.
