here's my question. you're asking an openended question.
"and am doing it on whether or not it's cheaper to swap a tranny from auto to manual"
so you're asking whats cheaper but you give only one option. this doesnt make too much sense and I'm not sure how to answer. perhaps revising this would give you better results.
sorry, lol, the other part is (look I know it's dumb, an idiot can answer it, lol) or just buying a manual. But I really wanted to make this to inform people about cars and tranny's and all that good stuff, I might change it later though I still have a bunch more time, just need those notes for the remaining 40 notecards though.
