Default engine swap 2001 pt limited 5 speed

Not sure if this was asked before thinking of doing a swap from a pt gt in to my 2001 . I've been searching for a 5 speed gt can't find so I figured I'd make one . Any thoughts thanks

That's going to likely be problematic and very hard if possible.

The 5-speed tranny used in the 2001 is not the same as the "Getrag tranny used in the later GT. Also, GT's that have 5-speeds have different PCM's than GT's with automatics. And if the GT was originally an automatic, even the speedometer cluster is different.

There lots of info on the web about doing this. But it's going to be hard. Here's a good thread as a primer.

Need help to swap to a manual transmission

After that, put "pt cruiser transmission swap" into Google and see what comes up.

Also, right now GT PT's are fairly cheap. The most economical plan would likely be to sell what you have now and buy a GT with a manual tranny already in it.
