I have an auto gt too, and have found out that it's exteremely expensive to do this, because I've looked in to it too.
But, good luck, and let me know how it goes!

You should find a better reason to do a complete conversion than "I'm too lazy to look for good cars."

It will be very expensive, more than the cost of selling your car and buying a GTS. No matter how well it's done, too, it just won't be quite the same as having a true GTS. Your car will also be out of commission for a few weeks at least, more if problems develop.

A dealership might not be the best place to do tranny/engine swaps, and for liability issues (or just PITA issues) they may not do it for you.

And if you're at a dealership, why don't you buy a GTS there? wtf
