    Maybe he is a dick, but what he said is true. We have articles about this, and we've had many threads about it in the past. Run a search first, and if you can't find anything, then come back here and maybe somebody can write out a list for you.

    Essentially you're just going to need EVERYTHING that would come in the manual transmission version of the car...

    wanna know the easiest way? just buy a 5 speed car. for the price it's going to cost you even if you do the work yourself, it's not really worth it, you could just find one on craistlist for probably 800 or 1000

    I tend to agree with this. We're talking about a nearly 20 year old economy car here. Unless you're just in love with the particular chassis that you already have, then just purchasing a manual-equipped car would be the smartest choice...

    i agree with the buying an already manual equipped car.... but, say you already have all (or think you have all of them) the parts... flywheel, clutch, pedals, ecu, trans, shift linkage...... and got it all for under three hundred dollars.... what do you do then. say you already tried swapping out your automatic with another, and after just three weeks.... it's going dead too.... what then??? guys?

    Then you make your own thread for your own problem. Better yet, you could just make a decision (oh god, decisions at 26?) and not take up space on the webservers. :p
