Not a huge diff ill say. I drove a buddies 5sp before testing n buying my auto and yeah i cpuld see where the manual would come in handy sometimes. But idk i could personally get used to the long clutch easily.

Can't just compare transmission and certainly not 1999 vs 2013. What is the current gearing and tire size. Regear might be more appropriate instead of tranny swap. Unless you find you really want a stick more than an slush box.
