trade in for a manual cost way less and more reliable than a conversion.
I suppose, If selling my car or trading it in was an option I would go for something that has a little more performance like an RX-8 or 350Z. I had mustangs and a 300zx a few years back, and there is just something about doing unorthodox mods that is rewarding. I am looking into a hiboost turbo kit, but have heard some not so good things about using it with the stock internals and an auto transmission. I have not found any parts to beef up the auto, and if there is, it usually sacrifices drivability. There is always the question, why didnt I just buy a manual in the first place. I bought the car for my wife, and now that she has started her in real estate is becoming successful she is getting her own vehicle, and I can have my mazda back.(she could not drive manual, nor wanted to learn.) so thats where I am
