I have a wrecked 2004 Sebring with the 2.7L V6 and auto transaxle. I'm considering another project, to put a later model engine into a Chrysler Conquest. Since the price is right (free) on the 2.7, I looked to see if there was ever a manual trans option. I see the Sebring did so, this takes care of the clutch. The problem I'm running into is finding a RWD manual transmission to mate with it. There are other issues such as the intake pointing the wrong way, but it appears Charger RWD parts could be used to fix that.
From what I've read here on Allpar, the 2.7 was developed from the 3.5 V6. Looking into vartiations there, I saw a Nitro that used a 6 speed manual, but it appears not with the 4.0 V6 that is in the 2.7 family.
My question then relates to the bellhousing bolt pattern. Is it the same for the 2.7 V6 as it is for other cars/trucks?
Thanks for any info.
