    I've been looking around for ages to come to the conclusion, that the only practical performance parts, that aren't incredibly overpriced for the 1ZZFE, is just a Cold Air Intake.
    I looked at a 4AGE swap awhile back because of this, but it's OBD1, whilst my car is OBD2.
    After everything, I kinda figured to do 2ZZGE/manual 6spd swap.
    I have the automatic 4 or 5 speed, I think.
    Question being, would the 2ZZGE/tranny swap be good, and for that matter, even possible?

    It's an easy swap. Just gotta make a custom header and mount

    There are links to the axles needed to make a C60 transmission swap work in the 8th gen Corolla.
