Texas Tuner To Offer The 6-Speed Manual 2020 Toyota Supra Enthusiasts Want

Toyota has no plans of selling the all-new 2020 Supra with anything other than an eight-speed transmission but fortunately, tuning shop European Auto Group has announced it will offer six-speed manual conversions for the sports car.

During a recent interview with Car Buzz, the owner of European Auto Group, Art Bartosik, revealed that the company is taking customer deposits for those looking to have a Supra where they can row their own gears.

According to EAG, converting a Toyota Supra from an automatic to a manual will cost about $12,000 for parts and labor. That’s a lot of money but those considering spending the money can rest easy in the knowledge that the tuner will only use OEM parts from BMW.

Powering the Toyota Supra is BMW’s desirable 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six B58 engine and while neither Toyota nor BMW offer it alongside a manual ‘box in the Supra or Z4 M40i, there is a six-speed manual that works with the B58. For example, cars like the BMW 340i and M240i are fitted with B58 engines and available with manual transmissions so sourcing parts shouldn’t be too much trouble for EAG.

In addition to performing a transmissions swap, the tuner says it will work alongside Canadian company ProTuning Freaks to work on a power upgrade package for the sports car that promises to increase power from the standard 335 hp to 420-430 hp at the wheels. The swap will likely void the Supra’s warranty but EAG says it is looking into a four-year/50,000 mile warranty to cover the cars which it converts.

EAG will present its first manual 2020 Toyota Supra at November’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

    or buy an M2 competition or (even better) get a crazy deal on a c7 corvette grand sport manual and annihilate those cars on track

    Wow this is SOOOO ugly. I have the 340i Manual, but think the Chevy Manual with the V8 is much better, but overpriced in Australia. The BMW out handles, but the CHEV out sounds
