    Yes it is costly, most of the people on this site are going to tell you to sell it and get another car that is already a 5speed.

    just the labor alone can touch 1,000. Sometimes you have to weld mounts to the frame for the pedals and linkage, not to mention new tranny, clutch, and/or ECU and engine mods. sell your auto to some commuter, and use the cash to buy a manual project. they are usually cheaper anyways, so you might have some cash left over for mods. If you started over with a manual, and spend the 1.8k on mods you would be set up real nice.
