It is a BIG pain. The price differs with the part of the country you live in. Call a couple of local garages. If you can find a doner car it will help.

people do it all the time you need a automatic flywheel a donor car would help you need some what to shift the tranny but they sale the parts at most auto stores the drive line will have to be changed shortened or lengthened which means you have to have it balanced donor car will have all of that keep you old parts you remove alot of people what to go to a manual and need the parts you will take off ebay the parts

"Yes, you can" (sounds very well known, no?), but it will be too expensive! Beside the gear box you have to change allot of parts. Better sale the car and buy one with automatic! But the fun will never be the same ... no offense for automatic gear box lover!
