Default Engine Cradle Differences auto vs manual

Title is pretty much the question, anybody ever have to swap an engine craddle in a 7th gen yet? I need to change one, found one out of an auto car, mine is a manual. I called the dealer, said they list 2 different part numbers, but they couldn't tell me why. Thanks in advance.

If you are asking about the subframe:


Then they have different part numbers and prices:
4ATKA 50200-S5A-A84 $496.35 (2001)
4ATKA 50200-S5A-A72 $342.64 (2004)
5MTKA 50200-S5A-A04 $519.87

01-03 rear engine mount is different from AT to MT

that maybe help in something

Yes, that is what I'm referring to. I bought an 03 manual coupe with some front end damage, the cradle is damaged and I need to find a new one. I found an 04 auto coupe that has been hit in the rear, I'm contemplating buying it for parts. If the mount is the only difference, I can most likely re-weld it in the proper location. I was affraid there would be a major difference that might cause interference with the block or trans case.

no the only difference in the subframes between auto and manual is the front motor mount is 3 inches to the left on the manual. the back mount is the same for all years 01-05. and you can buy an auto subframe and move the front motor mount, infact i have one im selling. send me a pm if youre interested.

Well I need to get airbags for the car too, and this one has good ones that match. Also need a door panel, so that's about $700 worth of stuff. Figure I can either sell or use the D17A2 that's in it, also has alloys I can sell. Might use the 04 sheetmetal and "convert" mine to an 04/05 style front end. Figure also if I can sell the other parts off the car, then scrap the shell I'll be ahead of the game.
