Hey everyone, I'm on the finishing stretch of an ECVT to manual spd tranny swap in my Justy.
I won't bother with posting a bunch of drivel, but I figured if anyone had any questions, I would do my best to answer!
I'll just leave this here.

Hey Mate, I am thinking about doing the same swap as you mentioned. How did it go for you? Do I need to drop the engine aswell? I am guessing it should be a pretty simple swap. is there anything in your swap that caused any headaches? thanks for your time.
I've done it recently. A whole lot of things to change and to do. Flywheel, complete clutch, linkage, pedals, rear diff, gearbox, all the shifting system, instruments (i have left the one from ecvt). Remmember about electrical work
deegore: I slept in my 2 door driving from AZ to MN. Some front seats that fold flat would be necessary to really get comfortable.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

Justy1200cc: I bought a pink sti badge off wish. it was pretty big and when I found a real sti the logo was even smaller than the justys
