Auto to Manual
So hopefully I wont be replacing my transmission for a very very long time but I am a realist and seeing that I have 103k on my truck I am starting to put money aside for any major issues like that.
Obviously Im not lookin for exact numbers jsut ballpark figures just incase anything happens to the tranny in the future.
1st off how much would a hole new stock automatic tranny (what I have now) torqueshift.
2nd since I like driving a stick and all how much more would it be to have the manual put in instead? I know some of you think I'd be nuts to do this but I like stick shift not auto's and I bought this truck cuz it was a hell of a deal but it was automatic (beggars cant be chosers right?) well if I gotta replace it in the future I wanna get what I want 6 speed manual (want the extra top end gear for fuel saving and cruisin at speed on long trips) if its something realistic (like 500-1000 more) but if its like outrageous then oh well I will just have 2 buy a new truck and order exactly what I want then which still wouldnt be all that bad....
There gona have to cut a hole for the stick to come up into the cab and also add a clutch pedal (which these 2 thing are probably where most of the cost is gonna come) then the tranny itself which in theory for this example lets just say its pretty much a stock stick shift tranny no rediculous upgrades on flywheel, clutch plates, gears etc. I am gonna guess about 2500-3k but I really dont have a clue and I am sure there is probably a few hardcore guys on ehre that have done some stuff like this.
Lets just hope this doesnt happen within the nezt 2 years... lol SKOOL SUCKS I HATE BEING BROKE! I guess thats what they make personal loans for though right??? lol jk
