I have a question about transmissions that I was wondering if any of you guys could answer. I have a 95 Tercel 5 speed. You all probably know that the gear ratios for the Tercel were geared for fuel econonmy whereas transmissions out of cars like the new scion Xa or the old paseo were geared more for performance. Does anybody know if any of these more performance oriented transmissions will swap into my tercel? Thanks.

I have had a 4 speed manual, a 5speed Tercel and now have a 5speed Paseo transmission in my stock engined 93 Tercel. The paseo transmission is supposed to have the exact same gears as the Tercel but it does seem a touch peppier in the lower 4. 5th is still the dead even same final drive ratio though, same as the 4 speed as well. I'd like to try a 6 speed if they weren't so expensive. They came in some Corollas with 4EFE engines.
