just go T5.
cost around $400-500 for parts if you hunt, then sell auto gearbox and s**t get a few hundred back and find some mates who can install it and in around a day or so doing it your first time (less if you have air tools and a pit/hoist) and you will demolish those VN's

Probably looking at ~$1200 for just the gears or ~$1800 with LSD fitted.

If your driving an EA though, and your 17 so that's fair enough, but this is probably more then the car is worth, so you might want to look at second hand or diy (it's not cheap to get someone else to do it for a reason though).
