Hey, i have a 05 base and am interested in swapping out the auto for 6 or 5 speed gear box. Can the type-s tranny work with out any issue? or should i stick with base 5 speed? Are there any advantages in the two for power gains?I reside in florida, so nothing but straight roads.

I'm not sure about the 05/06 models, but I do know the 02-04 models can do this swap. there's a DIY thread out there for this, but it's for the 02-04 models... I wanna say you can do this, but you have to do the 05/06 transmissions. Not sure, but you would have to research it. I'm pretty sure the info is here... but you need to understand something... your block will limit you as far as power. the a3 block can only take so much before the block blows. I hate to say it (b/c I have a base auto) but you may be better off just getting a type S
