A big downside to the 2020 Toyota Supra for some enthusiasts is that the car doesn’t come with a manual transmission. The aftermarket is stepping up and offering a manual transmission conversion that isn’t cheap. The swap from the stock Toyota automatic to a manual takes up to 45 days to complete and costs $12,000 for parts and labor.
Preorders can be made for $6,000 down, and the entire process uses BMW parts that are perfectly mated to the stock Toyota/BMW engine. The company making the transmission swap is called EAG, and they have teamed up with another company called ProTuning Freaks to offer a tune for more power at the same time.
EAG says that it expects about 420 to 430 horsepower at the wheels after the tune is applied. That is a hefty sum for a transmission swap, but if you want a stick shift Supra, this is the only way to go for now.Filed Under: Auto News
