not a straight forward job bro. yes u can change to s14 box's but i think u'd have to change the tailshaft, match the bellhousing with s14 bolts, change clutch and flywheel with matching bolts, s14 gearbox crossmember, short shifter and a few pints of beer.

gearbox for s13 is quite cheap.u can get Rm600-1000. more than that quite exoensive.
other than that u need to convert from pull type to push type.or other way round.cant remember,i think u should contact joehan at drifthouse.usj1,quite friendly feller when he's not sick.hehe.

one more question, the flywheel of the 5 speed transmission are way lighter than the 6 speed.
do you need to make engine balancing once it is changed?

Almost 4 years ago i changed my S15 gearbox from Auto to a S14 5 speed manual. All in including gearbox, long sharf, clutch pedal, clutch pump etc plus workmanship came to RM2200. So nowdays whould be cheaper, especially on the parts.

bro damnthing - where did u do ur conversion? any downside to the conversion?
Hi there GroundZro, i dont see any downside to the conversion. Touchwood, i havent had any problems with it although its being whacked till kingdom comes once every month (Gymkhana) and since my car is a daily driver, i think i can consider the gearbox to be tough as i am not light footed! :biggrin::driver:
The conversion was done somewhere in USJ1, although i have no idea if the shop is still open until today as it has been almost 5 years now. However, i can suggest a place, its called Pit Works. Its at Puchong Perdana, and a lot of the silvia guys send their rides to him. He is also on FB, just search for Pit works, the pic is of a orange Sr20 head.
