mines an auto....atm, and as of monday it will be a manual. not only does it make your car so much fun too drive, it really adds to the resale too.

also how many klms has you car done. cause you may aslo have to look at getting it reconditioned so you may as well go the manual!!!

hope that helps

Convert to manual. You will be flat out finding a factory manual that isnt an XR6.

Less drivetrain loos with a manual means more power at the wheels. More control with a manual etc.

Auto is good for eating and rolling a smoke while driving. Thats it.

It would be the best improvment you can do I changed over and the performance differance was great. Mine cost $650 but I would never change the pedal box again go for the MAL WOODS pin
