155 TS WB, 90 V6

166 TS 6speed swap

Google didn't help much, so might as well ask here.

My car is a 155 TS 16V. I might get hold of a 166 TS 6 speed gearbox + cable and shifter for the cabin.

So how big of a project is it going to be?

Mounting points? Driveshaft issues? Speedo?

Anything is helpful at this point. Even just links to similar projects.

from previous discussions, the box offers little difference to the existing set up, other than more gears to get through, 1st is nearly the same on both and 5th and 6th are also similar, so you will just be changing gear more often. So while technically fairly easy to do, the end result is not really worth the bother.
166 6 speed boxes are also quite rare (read expensive) as it was only fitted to the later cars after sales had peaked, in the UK at least.
