Hey now i have an auto and i hate it. I really wanna keep my car but if i cant change out trannys i might sell it. I have heard everyone say trade it in or dont do it it isnt worth it. Right now i dont have enough money to trade in and i know 2 people that can do the tranny swap for cheap.. So back to my question hahawhere could i find a tranny and for how much could i find it. Any help is appreciated.

This has been hashed over many times. But, let me give it a try.

You can't just pop in a manual transmission. You need to change the PCM, drive axles, shift linkage, wiring harness, security monitor, and a few other things.

The way that I have read about it actually being done is with a donor car. Some wrecked Focus with a manual transmission and all of the other parts. I'm looking for such a car right now.

If you don't have the money to trade, then you probally don't have enough money to swap. Just my .02
