There is, call Magnus Motorsports or Shep Trans, tell them whats going on and,what you wish to do. In return, they will call Austrailia and, figure out what is doable.

kylesvt720 Worst part is your car will be worth crap when you're done. Who wants to buy a hacked up swapped 2012 car.

Fraychild I had a friend of mine who did an Auto to Manual swap in an old 96' G20 - There was a lot involved and it took a few months - Between cutting into the wall and adding the pedal, swapping out the tranny and mounts, figuring out sensors and wiring, recalibrating the ECU, adjusting the cable, replacing the gear box, replacing the shifter and the console parts etc.

It's a cool project, but definitely involves some down time, money and certainly extensive research.

reddog093 Wouldn't be practical, but I'd love to have a manual tranny without giving up my Kona Blue :P

lscrx Just a thought, since 95% of America drive automatic... you may find a dealer with a used 5 speed 2012 that would flat-trade. It would be easier for them to sell your car, you may even get a little cash from them if you're a good negotiater.

I think an almost 40 mpg car will sell a lot easier than a truck in the land of $4/gallon gas. Especially if he has it detailed and markets it right.
