First of all, search is your friend, my friend. Secondly, a complete vr6 swap you can find in the classifieds sometimes for around 3-4k$, tranny and all. A turbo kit from say EIP is about $2500, and a tranny of top of that, from a donor car, I'd say about $700 maybe. DOnt quote me on the tranny prices, not %100 percent certain. Best bet is to find someone who wants to swap auto for manual, which may be the hardest task of all. Good luck
it all depends on who u know. do u have connections? can u get parts cheap? do u have any friends who are good with a wrench?
Derek (Countblah....) is doing my auto to 5 speed swap in my VR as we speak (pics will be up when hes done). I did the whole swap for a helll of alot cheaper then any shop would want....basically if u have hookups on stuff, it makes everything so much easier..
