Exclamation Auto to 5 speed?

Is there ANY way possible?


I'm in desperate need of a 5 speed.
I know, sounds crazy, but, sick of the auto ferealz.

Trade your car. Easiest way. There is so much electrical wise in these with the ECM, TCM, etc. that it is just not worth the time or money. Take everything off your car, put it to the side, trade your car and put everything on the new car. Tint and everything else that can't be removed obviously has to be re-done.

I was hoping this wasnt going to be the answer.
See, the only thing is, Ive still got about 2 more years to pay this thing off.
So I was trying to eliminate that idea...what else do you think?

Yep it would cost way more time and effort to convert, than simply trading it in.

Meh.. They are good, especially for the price. But a true tune will help out a lot more. Plus you'll get a few more ponys out of it!
