not worth it. If you actually do mod ur car, you can mod the tranny, and it can shift waay better than you can when done properly.

get a wrecked GT manual.... and swap it into your car, and then you'd have a manual.... you can get a wrecked GT for less than $3000

Hmm, I would trade it, but I already put on Flowmasters, and I have my Guages installed which took me a good 2 hours to get in and get it all nice and wired, I dont want to just GIVE it away, unless it could be for a Mustang GT. But I dont think ill get anything higher then 6 grand for it if even that.

Yea thats what I thought, well I like this car to much to just give away, everyone should have a special bond with their car if they like cars. So I would rather just throw in a shifter kit, tranny cooler, and 4.10 gears instead of getting a stock manual. Thanks for the help you guys.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! :D

A manual swap is doable, but it's not what you'd call economical.

I've done them in the past on vehicles that never came with a stick, even as an option, and were less sophisticated. It's all in having your ducks in a row. Knowing what needs to be done and having everything on hand.

So, while it'd be cheaper and maybe faster to buy another ride it isn't impossible especially for a vehicle that means something special to you.

Why sound we believe you. I shifted all the sports cars I have owned and I am enjoying my Interceptor Auto tranny which will bark going into 2nd and 3rd and giving up about 20+ HP on Rob and him having a 5 speed he only got about 3/4 car length on me at Track day. I still got him by half a car length on the first run

So much for slow ass Auto's

Old has nothing to do with it. I can outdrive most. I can outshift most. I can out steer most. most will never drive cars with the horsepower the cars I have driven had. My car is set up for mountain driving. I like the Performance Auto tranny because I am able to shift like a manual if I want to but on the dyno the way the auto tranny is set up and with the programming in a 1/4 mile run i cannot beat the auto shifting. Coming into a downward hairpin on a mountain road I enjoy the downshifting though!!!!
