Mostly the same, different exhaust valves on the manual ... I think putting a manual engine into an Auto would be fine as the auto doesn't rev as hard as the manual was designed for ...

As Christmas is fast approaching i think I'll stick an ad on donedeal shortly and see what I'll get for it ... spent too much fixing it last year to justify trying again ... :(

thanks anyway :)

Said goodbye to it a few minutes ago and have mixed feelings, sad to see it go after 5 years but happy as the man who bought it has big plans for it, it'll be reborn better than ever :D
