I have only seen this once and a few others have tried but ran into road blocks. I would try and get in contact with this person somehow.

Good luck! I know it can be done. The only thing that stopped me was getting the proper OEM parts like clutch master cylinder, pedals, proper shift linkages....Those parts are not direct swap-overs from the Mx6/Mx3/probe

I'd say once you are done and perfected, make a kit, but then again who even owns these cars anymore? Its a defunct 4 door sedan with a slim 6 banger that even with modest work can't even touch a modern 4 cylinder in power to weight ratio. :(

I still love the body lines and will probably drive it till the wheels fall off or can't find parts for it. At least its paid in full for!

if i had a choice, i would convert to a tiptronic. no clutch pedal, no hydraulics. and since the millenia uses a separate tcm, the wiring should not be very difficult. maybe the mazda 6 block is the same as the millenia? then you could get a 6 spd. ooo, paddle shifters

Tip... never thought I'd see that on a Millenia forum. :D

The Audi has one.. although I rather the old manual shift way. No so much fun.

tiptronic is what i call the newer style transmissions. the mazda3 we have has it, move the shift lever over into the gate, then bump up or down to shift. however, the 3 has very good programming for shifting, both up and down. the transmission makes very good use of the narrow powerband the engine has. if this transmission was in the millenia, i dont think anyone would be wanting a manual transmission.

I'd like some information on the parts you use and what all is involved. My name is bryan. I live in ohio. I have a very clean millinea s. Lots of performance parts on it plus nitrous. I just wanted a sleeper.
