Subaru SVX transmission Q's

I've been looking at purchasing a second car thats an AWD as an alternative to my FR. It's been the Subaru SVX that has caught my attention, but i've heard the transmissions are weak and most are automatics, does anybody know of a tranni swap that would fit the SVX's engine?

Yes, the tranny is slightly weak, and they were ALL automatics. Also, check out the insurance before you pull the trigger on that car. A buddy of mine was looking at one (50 something years old, great driving record). He said the insurance was outrageous. The reason for this is because it was only produced for a very short period of time, and shares almost no parts with any other car. So replacement mechanical and body parts are very difficult and expensive to come by. Figured you might want to know.
