I have read a lot of posts about how doing the auto->manual swap is a waste of money, but none of them really say what you need. I got my car for $8,000 new, so I want to work with this car. What all will I need? I need to know about wiring, the actual tranny, EVERYTHING. Thank you

The only FJ user I know that successfully did it was AlaFoci. You might try pm'ing or emailing him. He had a whole donor MTX car so he just pulled the parts off as he needed them. I know he had to replace one major wiring harness as well as the cpu. I think he even used the keys from the donor car because the PATS is tied to the main ecu. Are you planning on doing the work yourself? That might help cut the costs down to a reasonable level.
