I would sell it and get a 5 Speed, it's just not worth it, it's going to cost you around 2-5G's and it's not going to be a perfect ride after that as well

its pretty simple to do and shouldnt cost that much. My advice is to do a full swap (B series) instead of just swapping to a D series tranny.

most of the labour is cutting the floor for the shifter

i thought that labour is only like 500 bux for a job like this....then just add on the parts and thats not too much more...

$1000-1500 is what it should cost depending on tranny choice and who does it.

why are you swapping to manual anyways?? what's your reasoning behind it?

save up and do a B series swap along with the auto to manual conversion, it will be worth it in the end to do it all at once.

I can also say Scott is a hella good guy.

Most ppl who swap to manual feel it's totally worth it to swap and they love it!!
