bellhousing/pumps can be swapped.

what matters is weather its a 5r55e or 4r55e

If its an auto you can do what edge said and swap the bell housing etc...but if its a manual trans then your SOL as the Mazda trans does not have a removable bellhousing.

too bad i scraped both bell housings a while back.

5r44e and 5r55e are just about the same exact transmission.

the 4r44e and 4r55e are different as they are "4 speeds"

the fluid pump in built into the bell housing.

i put the 6 pinion in when i had my trans apart.

the 3 pinion is on the right lower.
