So I got in an accident and my manual rio was smashed. But still runs good. I found another one same color but with an auto, a/c and power steering witch mine does not have. So can I take my engine And trans and stuff it in the auto body Using all the parts from the manual car or is there no way to swap it to manual

Probably... if you use the wiring as well and the body style is the same. Drilling may be required for the pedal assembly and shifter.

there were minor discrepancies between my1.6 auto donor into my 1.5 manual but nothing I couldn’t solve having both cars in front of me.
