Manual Swap difficulty?

Just wondering, I currently own a 4th gen and found a 5th gen for $1000
Needs auto Tranny replaced.

Would it be worth it to replace the tranny with a 5-speed?
What are the estimated costs?

Re: Manual Swap difficulty?

When i looked at having my 5th gen swapped over it was about 600 in parts and another 1000-1500 in labor, but I get along with the mechanic and offered to help him out to cut the costs. You could always go talk to a shop about it. if anything just ask about the labor you could probably find the parts for much cheaper.

Re: Manual Swap difficulty?

If you know what your doing it's simple and easy. If you don't get a friend that does and have him teach you, buy him lunch and save on labor.
Here's the best DIY, it shows you how to do everything has helpful links and shows you all the parts you need
