Just for our information, I just received a quote from Modern Driveline to change over to a manual T 5 tranny. Includes everything you need to make the swap. This is all NIB parts $4100
I guess I will keep it an automatic unless I can do a swap. LOL
You can do it for a lot less than $4100 if you are a scrounger. Sure, writing a check is the easy way out but searching for bargains is half the fun of the swap. If your mechanic skills are limited then you don't have much choice.
Finding somebody who wants your car and has a car to trade that you are happy with will be very difficult.
