I have an auto and I want to get a manual, but instead of buying another car, I just want to swap, auto to manual.

Can I get a list of ALL the part I will need ?
Does Anyone in the jersey area have experience in doing this? or know of someone that can do it for me?
PRICING?

I want to get this done, so please help me out.....

i am actually doing one right now. so far i've spent $960. mainly because im not putting cheap ass parts into the swap. im buying aftermarket performance shit. here's a list maybe this will help you out. and ebay is ur friend :P

5 speed tranny (duh) (i paid $320)
shift linkage ( $70)
clutch pedal assembly ($25)
flywheel ($205)
clutch kit ($200)
shifter ($68 and some cents)
shift knob (i think it was like $16.95 or something, type r :) )
shift boot ($20 i think, it's also type r)
5 speed tranny mounts (came with my tranny)
center console (have yet to buy)
manual gauge bezel (have yet to buy)

i think there might be more but im tired and can't think but that should be a majority of it. someone add to this list if im missing something.

also some of the stuff i bought with this swap aren't really necesary but i like it.


EDIT: maybe try searching on g2ic.com they have a ton of shit on this

why dont you just spend the money and sway a b or a k instead of just doing the trans?

If you indeed have a DA. The tunnel will need to be modified where the shifter pokes through and you have add a hole in the firewall for the clutch cable. Nothing too difficult, just a couple more things to consider.
