So i'm the proud owner of a not all that new sixth gen with a grand total of 270,000 miles on it. Needles to say, i'm going to be swapping it asap. Well. I say swapping. I would prefer to keep an f23 in it and boost it a smidge, but I know the automatic transmission won't handle it very well, and I don't know a shop around me that will perform the manual swap... it's just a little out of my personal wheelhouse. My question for you intelligent superbeings: Is there any more durable a/t that is plug and play with the F23a1? if not, what is the easiest engine/transmission swap i could do that won't loose power or reliability? Car has to stay ODBII. Thanks guys!!!!
