3.0 V6 5 speed
I have a '91 Shelby 2.5L auto, that I want to swap to a 5 speed. Does a 5 speed from a '91 3.0 Daytona have the same bellhousing? Is that trans the 543? Will that trans work behind a 2.5L?

The A543 is 3.0L only, to convert from an auto to manual on a 91 2.5L you will need an A523 or A568 and of course the Flywheel/Clutch Components/ Pedal Assembly/ Cables,(clutch and shifter for a Daytona) Shifter Assembly/Center Console(?) and possibly a SBEC for a Manual Trans.

You can try opening a thread in the "Parts Wanted" section, you may find someone parting out a 91-93 Daytona.

Here is more info on Chrysler Transaxles and Drive Axles.

Thanks for the wisdom NAJ. I'm looking around and thinking..... I "MIGHT" just leave it auto and have the tranny worked over. (shift kit) Here is the kicker. I just bought a Black VNT. Bringing it home tomorrow. That should take care of the need to row gears.
