    OP, I'm kinda on the fence about what you propose, my auto trans took a huge shit & from quotes I got to rebuild it has left me in shock (still) up to $3300.00 & come to find out that this is not uncommon for a price... I said bullshit to that , & will probably go used one, but did think about conversion to manual, I know the gearing in rear will be different & other things to add or remove, just dont know which way to go yet...
