ATX to MTX conversion
I've got an automatic tranny right now and i wanna change it to a stick shift. How should I go about doing that. I looked on and they're selling an MTX tranny, so would i just have to buy that and take it to a shop?

are you willing to do a probably 2k swap or just use the 2k for a auto tranny buildup ?

you will need much more than just a tranny fr the swap...

If you build up the ATX, you could have better launches and not to mention the relaxing in traffic. If I were you, I would just build up the ATX.

I agree also. Build up the auto. Automatics get a bad name but sometimes they are all not that bad.

I know you must hate your ATX, but just think. When your in bumber to bumber traffic, you have it easier then someone with a MTX. Just build up your ATX because to do that swap would be alot of money.

This thread has intriqued me....What can you do to the ATX to build it up?

How much HP can I expect to gain from a good ATX upgrade?

The Len Tech Automatics one I mean.

Would it just be better to get my car Turbocharged than to buy a new tranny?
