you can find a used d series trans for not much. try ebay, or your local junkyard. but then you gotta get other shit like an ECU, the actualy clutch pedal, shifter, i think shift linkage, and labor. i am actually considering the same thing. and the guy at the shop i work at said he wouldnt help me do it cause itd be such a pain in the ass. honestly id rather buy a different car than spend a shitload to have the trans swapped. dont mean to sound like an ass but how can you be happy with the car if you want a manual? and why didnt you just get a manual in the first plAce? and in the 2nd place, who said autos cant be fast?

im not being an ass kid. if i was being an ass id say something like "youre a dumbass if you bought an auto when you really wanted a manual"
but i didnt. i asked you why you bought something you didnt want. the responses above this one should help you determine what you should do. if you got the $, go for it. but to be more cost effective, get a dif. car.

me, i am in no situation to go buying different cars. my dad bought me a del sol when i was 18 and im working with an auto cause its all i got. of course id rather have manual. good luck whatever you do. let us know.
