I'll be doing an engine swap, so my good-running 44k-mile 1ZZ and 6-spd manual will be available. What is a fair price to ask for the engine and trans? (Run well. For the next couple weeks they can be heard and seen in my '03 Spyder).

Sounds reasonable. Is the trans out of a Celica or something or a converted SMT car tranny? Is there a difference?

Yes, everyone will want to know which 6 speed it is. They all have different final drive ratios, and that is critical to the application.

It's the trans that came stock with 03, originally an SMT car, but converted to a true manual using a MWR kit. So, I think it's a C60 trans. Does that sound right?

That is a C65. The gears are identical to the C56 which is the OE 5 speed, except that it has the 0.725 6th added on as an overdrive. In particular, it has the same 4.3 final as the C56.
