Auto to Manual swap

Hi there, I have a 05 Aero Auto and would like to swap to manual gear box at a later date. T would like to know if the 5 speed from an aero the same as the 5 speed from a SE of an earlier model of 98 to 02. It would be easier to just purchase one, but there does not seem to be any 05 manual Aero's in Australia. I am thinking of purchasing a manual SE to swap all gearing components. Would this work?
Also how about 9000 aero maual gear box fit my 9-5. I have seen 9000 aero manual selling here.

Harvey knows a good amount on here, but I think the later manual transmission have better bearings.

But all things being equal they will all work as long as they are from a 4 cyl. Usually the clutch disk and pressure plate are the diff parts from lpt to Aero.

im pretty certain aeros/SEs used the same gearbox per year, however after 2002ish they made some pretty real updates to the gearboxes. so given the choice i would highly recommend you get one made after that timeframe

9000's have a pretty different CV/halfshaft assembly, this along probably makes it more trouble than its worth
