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.
