1.9 jtd swap to 6 speed box


in my blasts up and down the motorways and dual carriageways of NE scotland I've begun to ponder the merits of a 6 speed gearbox - specifically wrt fuel consumption.

Am I right in thinking that if I find the 'box out of a 150 horse JTD16v it will be:

a) 6 speed?
b) a relatively straight swap for a competent mechanic?

Many thanks in advance,


PS forgot c) horrendously expensive?

PPS forgot car is of course an 03 8 valve jtd 115 horse

The 140 horse 16v jtd can also come with a 6 speed as well as it's the same engine as 150. Not sure about the swap though
