say i can get it to my house for $100o. Its going to need a new motor. I want to do a transmission swap to make it manual. Parti-killer Parti-vi pointed out that there are no manual XJ’s. I was thinking maybe I could do an engine/transmission swap. so my questions:

I figured maybe its easier to take a transmission and engine together than try to put two unrelated ones together. (like a jag engine with who knows what for a tranny)
