My apologies if this has been posted before.

I'd like to swap a 2014+ 6MT Skyactiv transmission into my 2012 Skyactiv 6MT hatch to take advantage of the longer gear ratios. Is this a bolt in swap? Has anyone here undertaken this before?

Thanks for any and all responses.

I would bet that Mazda changed things just enough to make this more or less not possible. But hey Id be happy to be proven wrong too.

Yeah what had me curious was LKQ/interchange catalogs list the 12-16 2.0 w/sky as using the same or at least interchangeable 6MT. The newer transmission can be had dirt cheap with low miles so not a huge risk if it doesn't fit. I just wanted to do it soon before the used inventory becomes higher mileage and more worn.
