Default Switching Tranny from Auto to Stick.

Anybody have a ball-park estimate on how much it would cost me to switch my automatic transmission to a manual. (done professionally by professionals) I have a feeling that I'm getting close to needing a rebuilt transmission, but I would much rather have a manual. How much would it cost to rebuild my tranny? I want to compare the costs and see if its worth it....

Never done a swap like that on something so new, but I'd say it won't be cheap. Rebuilding the auto will almost definately be cheaper. I'm a bit surprised you need a rebuild already. Is there a lot of miles on it?

Rebuild the auto. Manual would be a tranny purchase.Would have to replace the brake pedal with a smaller one so you can make room for your new clutch pedal.Lots of money in labor alone.
