For the manual swap, you'll just have to find all the parts on Craigslist, eBay, local scrap yards, etc.

If you don't mind spending a bit more $$ zionsville autosport sells complete swap kits. They give you the option of the full kit with a tranny or everything but if you already have the manual tranny to swap in. They also have a kit for an auto to 6 speed swap.

I've got a manual swap if you want to come to WV and pull it. I haven't gotten that far in the teardown on my car yet so I don't have all the parts off yet.

Well, you obviously bought a used cluster with used bulbs. But you can also check the plug connections.

It is not a kit, it is just all the parts on a manual car. We can PM and talk about price.

WOW! That is hella expensive. Might as well just get the parts from a salvage yard. For the prices listed, you'd even be better off grabbing a donor car as well.
