Yes. It would cost you the same or less to just trade in your car for a manual.

i guess it would be worth it if its sentimental, but whilst trading you could upgrade to a gts thumbsup

An auto Celica is fine for normal driving unless into real driving. The conversion is pointless. You want a sports car get a manual even if you can't drive one at the time. Trade it in for a manual. I will always opt for a manual regardless of car. Crack a beer, twist a joint, drive in traffic, or snow covered streets. It doesn't matter. A manual is all you need to know and your best friend. Be one with your car.

DEPENDS.

if you have a stock auto then yes it would be impractical to convert to a manual..because it would be cheaper to just buy a manual.

HOWEVER, some auto users have invested a LOT of $$ into their cars and if they decide they want a manual later on..it doesnt make sense to trade it in and just buy a manual (all the custom work will be lost..along with their time & effort). for these people, it's better to do the conversion thumbsup

That about sums it up. To me, manual is more fun!


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

something similar to tiptronic? it would be slower than a manual. i had seen something probably a year ago that supposedly did this. it was a universal kit though (not celica-specific), so how good the quality is/was i do not know.
