the transmission from the 318 will not work. you need to source a Getrag 260 transmission which is what comes with the 325. the swap to 5spd IS POSSIBLE but it is not for the non mechanically inclined. i know of a local guy that did the swap in 4 days from auto to manual. look up www.r3vlimited.com or www.e30tech.com and search for 5spd conversions.

i am thinking shes getting a 302 with a 4spd its just too slow for my needs 168hp factory should give it instant 300
