well, my car(875kt) currently has the FWD 3 speed automatic in it, and i've been considering rebuilding it for the past while in an effort to be able to chip it. I like having the auto, it makes the car very easy to drive and it always attracts a lot of attention because of the rarity.. But in order to rebuild it, it'll cost a lot of money buying a rebuild kit, extra clutches, external trans cooler, etc, etc. I'm now toying with the idea of doing a 5spd swap in it and I'm looking for some estimated prices, sources, tips, tricks, etc for doing such a swap. I know a few people that will be annoyed at me for butchering this car's originality and rarity but it's to the point now that something needs to be done with this trans before any problems arise, and I want something a little more reliable/powerful...
