As NEFaurora said, the parts you take out will be worth something. The auto trans being the big ticket item that would go against the $4,100.
Let's say that brings things down to $3,500 + whatever other leftover parts you have after the swap.

The cost and hassle of selling your car, cost of finding a new one, and the cost of getting it sorted out and like you want it will eat up most of that $3,500.

Unless you just want a different car anyway. But if I were you, liked my car, wanted to row through the gears bad enough to spend the money and time to sell / buy another, I think your money is best spent working with what you have.

Thats a really nice GT tribute coupe!

I have everything you need for a T5 conversion, but youd have to swap me your ride for my 94 Cobra...

I kid... but even with not having the time to do the swap yourself - if it were me and my vehicle - Id still consider getting all of the parts needed together. Then later, source out a very reputable VMF Member (or 2) on here who would be willing to help for a few bucks - or find a recommended reputable shop that can do it for a reasonable price.

Interesting option .

Buy a lovely 4 or 5 speed coupe, swap the bits then sell the other coupe. If you do it right you may have a net cost of zero.
