I have decided that I am gonna go ahead with swapping my auto transmission for a stick and was wondering where i should go to get all this done.....Should I go to the dealer or a local shop?

do your parents know about this? stay away from dealer and try to find a refurbished tranny, you'll probably need a new rear differential aswell. your better off selling your car and getting a new one that already has a manual, cause labor chargers are gonna kill you plus your cars probably looking at alot of downtime to complete the swap
