Shift Conversion

Ok guys...I'm definately getting my auto changed over to a 5 speed...and I was just wondering if anyone here has done this.

If so what route did you take? Did you go with the dealer to install the new tranny or did you use a private mechanic?

But guys I really need some good advice...like where do you think that I should get this done and how much do you guys think that this might run into?

i dont think it's worth it IMO. just trade your car in for a GT or GTS.

Getting Transmission is easy... but pedals are hard... grin
rewiring sucks too... IT's been done but... I dont know if the 'cost' will be worth it.

It's $4000+ including all the labors and other costs.. I think little things add up. I think trading in your car for manual gt would be cheaper...
