On the 5Ks, you need a complete parts car, there
are a few differences between the two, none of
which have anything to do with the chasis.
The idle computer and components like that
are unique to standard/automatic cars and
are not interchangeable BTDT. Also, there
may be differences in the driveshaft sizes,
differential gearing, flywheel, etc. It's
very do-able on a 5K, IF you have a mechanically
sound 5 spd. to do the transplant.
Doesn't make much sense though, considering
you can pick up a decent 5 spd. 5KS for
about $300 around here. Probably easier
to transplant the good stuff from an automatic
into a ratty 5spd than vice versa.
