oohhh that would be sweet! You can try looking for a mazda5 tranny. They were the 5-speed auto. It was pretty nice in my 5 I had. Though I did wish 2nd was geared lowered but of course my 5 weighed more than a 3. Driving normal to slightly speedy was awesome though. Just running through the gears was fun. I really liked how I could have alot of control over the shifting. It would even top out in 5th not 4th and you would be surprised how fast mazda would let thing go lol.

Sounds like a lot of trouble for a bump of...20 hp???? You have to make a swap worthwhile or you're going to regret doing it. It's never a cut and dry thing unless you're swapping in the same motor due to the old one being blown or something.
