Sooooo, this weekend. Im just getting out of steak and shake in my 1997 Mustang
GT convertible. Put the top down and im ready to go. One problem.... I cant go into reverse and my car is stuck in second gear... TIME FOR A TRANNY REBUILD... $1500 bucks down the down the drain... ORRRRRRR...
I was told it is possible to change the car to a manual. I guess all the holes for the manual transmission and clutch assembly are there because when the cars are in the factory they make it so they can make the car either an automatic or a manual...
So I was thinking. Because my tranny is basically ****ed up anyways, how much would it cost to convert my transmission to a standard. I went to a transmission shop and they said they could hook me up with a t5 tranny for about the same it would cost for the rebuild. He was pretty vague on the price he gave me. So I was wondering... What should I do? Get my transmission rebuilt and put an upgraded shift kit into it or should I change the transmission to a manual? Also how much do you think it would cost to get the swap done?
Thanks everyone for your responses,
