I did it with my Sera. I went from a 5E-FHE with auto box to 4E-FTE with manual box.

Very straightforward. With the 16pin & 26pin ECU connectors that the Sera and Starlet share, I had to add two wires which were not already in use - one for the hi/lo switch, the other for the boost sensor.

A couple of wiring mods under the bonnet, either to lengthen or shorten cables as some sensors are in different locations. Some end fittings are different so have to be swapped over.

I would recommend using Starlet clutch and gearbox as well to minimise any mating problems.

You will either have to fit a bonnet vent for the top intercooler, or relocate the intercooler elsewhere, although lag will suffer as a result.

I think a Paseo will need an upgraded fuel pump.

Is it worth it - yes!
