Wes, you really know your stuff. I just inherited a 03 dx, 5sod. It's got the 2.0, but I know that there's no replacement for displacement! Can I swap out the 2.3 or 2.5 from the Mazda 6 and still add turbo? My hp goal is about 230, 200 at the wheels. I do most of all my own work so I'm totally redoing the car. Any advice would be great.

Default 2002 protege automatic to manual mods

I have a 2002 protege es that the differential is noisy in and I want to replace it with a manual. I have two 2000 1.6L 5 speed doner cars, but all the information I have found tells me the 1.6L trans will not fit the 2.0L. Can anyone confirm this.

My other option is swap the 1.6L & 5speed in to the 2002, How much off a hassle will that be? (1.6L only has 72,000 miles on it, my 2.0L has 159k and heavy oil consummation through the valve stem seals)
