Re: How Much?

Where are you located? There may be someone on there that may be able to help with the swap and save on costs.

You need to price the transmission you want etc. Having a shop do it (with a warrenty hopefully) would be around $2000 depending on the shop.

Re: How Much?

Get your ass over to Craigslist and look for anything within a reasonable distance. You don't want to pay shipping charges on all the **** that is involved with a 5spd swap. It shouldn't be hard to find the stuff you need, I see it on CL ALL the time.

Re: How Much?

if you can get lucky, 700 dollars bare minimum DIY. and that is with all used parts. expect about 1200 dollars for a good swap DIY. but like the other guy said, if your planning on taking it to a shop, plan on about 2000 dollars depending on the shop and experience of the mechanic
