    you forgot to add a zero in there somewhere.

    even if you find really good deals on parts & install everything yourself, i dont think you can do it for under 1500-2000 roughly, from what i've seen from other people on the forum.

    is it worth it?
    thats not for us to decide. do you hate having the automatic so much that youre willing to drop a good chunk of change on swapping it?

    IMO.. it's not worth doing the swap. Either learn to live with and love the auto or trade the car in for one with a manual.
    If you have the means (both mechanically and financially) to do it, more power to you!

    Id deffinately swap out the trans for a 6 speed. Just remember you will need the pedal set and the ECU. Itll be a lot more than 300. Add 2700-3700 to that 300 and you got your ticket

    ^^^this^^^. If you are going to do a tranny swap, you might as well pay the extra $$$$ and get that 6-speed.

    If the car wasn't available with a manual and its value wasn't decreased by the conversion I might do this. Otherwise I'd not. In this case, I'd not.
