Are these parts ones you want to get or already on the Lude?

I think you answered your own question if these mods are on the car already.

Well I would tell you to wait and get the 5 speed but most of those things are things you can take off and put on the 5 speed, so its up to you put it back stock when you find a 5 speed sell you auto and just wait on the cams and gears and things until you have the 5 speed.

DONT DO THE SWAP!, you would save more by selling your auto 5th Gen and then buying a manual 5th Gen. Plus with that money you saved going that route vs. doing a 5 speed Swap you can buy most all of those mods you talked about in your earlier post.

You want to sell these parts? Something wrong with them? Why you want to sell? Which cams are they? Wow sorry for all the questions.

really To do a 5spd swap is about 2200k from what i have been told by the shops here in VA....and thats all oem parts....to do the swap with a new short shifter, light flywheel, and stage2 clutch, the overall price was about 3k even....between 2200k and 3k for a swap i would say is not bad, and not enough to sell the lude....

are these the jdm fog lights for the usdm fog lights??? if its the usdm ones, you would be better off getting the jdm fogs for the same price, and have more cool points after the installation
