The car is in the stealership right now and might need to have the tranny swapped :banghead: its an auto, so I might as well swap it to a five speed.

1. How much do you think this will cost all said and done?

2. Is it more to swap from auto to 5 speed, than old auto to new auto?

3. If I do have to have it swapped to 5 speed would this be the time to get aftermarket fly wheel, clutch, diff. ect..?

Most dealership wouldn't do the Step-> manual swap.
Even if they do it, You are looking at around 3500 for parts, and labor.
Unless you need to, Don't do it.

when something goes wrong and the dealer did the work on then the dealer has to cover it. if they were to do the swap, so many things could go wrong. its just too big of a risk for the dealership when all they can say is no
