Replacing Transmission

I have a 2005, ZX3 Focus, and I really really want it to me manual, but unfortunately it's auto. Any ideas on what the price might be, or if it's really worth paying?

There is no way it is worth paying to have done. You will need the tranny, all the linkage, clutch master cylinder, all the plumbing for the clutch, maybe a new brake fluid reservoir (the clutch uses the same reservoir as the brakes), plus it might confuse the computer and may require new CV joints. All in all, I would say it is going to cost you $2k, maybe more. The labor will cost an arm and a leg because basically you need to dissassemble the whole front of the car and reassemble it.

You'd probably be better off tweaking your ATX.
