Auto to manual conversion.

For those of you that have done it, what special work was involved and how much did it cost.

Then you've come to the wrong place. Use the search button. God made it for a reason. Use it.

Feel honored that the Search Nazi was EXTREMELY nicer than usual
(Don't worry DB72 your just having a good morning )
It's ok yo... Just the good people here have answered these questions, sometimes, hundreds of times... It is all over these forums :/ It gets a little annoying to those who have been on these forums a for years. I haven't gotten to the annoyance point yet. Although what I said, I guess, was kind of harsh :/... I am one grouchy ass b!tch at home anymore, I'm looking forward to going to work this morning.... This house is freaking lame....

I'm one person, and I can't imagine the price of converting auto to manual transmission being anything close to the more practical answer of buying a car that already has manual trans in it.

But of course, I'm only one person...
