I've been reading a lot of the posts here and I noticed that most performance mods apply to manual transmission models. I feel so restricted with my GT. I wish I asked my friend to teach me stick before I bought this car. I love it though, she looks really fast. All my friends want to drive my car. Still, I wanna make sure that I burn all the "souped up" civics here in the West Covina area. Why? Because...!
Anyways, I'm wondering if there's a way for me to change my automatic to manual. If it's possible, how much would it cost? Any pro/con?

Thanks a lot

if you're gonna burn a gank of cash for a conversion, why not get a 6spd european transmission? you'll have a bit of uniqueness, but at a price.

Yes it CAN be done, but honestly you are a lot better off just trading in on a manual tranny car. I have heard a lot of horror stories from the guys that have tried teh conversions, and I even had to go out to one guys house to finish the job the shop he took it to couldn't finish after like 72 days and 2500 bucks. Plus if you do it you can kiss any and all warranty on the vehicle goodbye.

holografik said to not waste your time making a slow car fast when in reality he bought a CAI and exhaust for his auto gt.

heh I have an exhaust on my gt auto. Havent decided to invest in a good ol' intake yet. That is if I actually cared about performance which I simply don't. :D

Think about it..how fast can you possibly go down commercial roads? Not worth it IMO.
