Thats right! I drove about 700 miles from Papillion, Ne to Plano, Tx to get an Auto to 5 Speed swap done by alphaseinor (Brian) at "V Dubs Only" in Plano, TX. I couldn't be happier with my 5 Speed swap :) It was actually cheaper to do a 5 Speed swap rather than to get a new Auto tranny, and it'll last alot longer as well. I dropped off my car Monday morning and it was ready to pick up Thursday afternoon. If anyone is looking into doing a 5 Speed swap and is willing to make the drive to Plano, Tx I Highly recomend alphaseinor (Brian) to do it! And from what I understand he INVENTED the 5 Speed swap. If anyone has any questions about my swap just ask, Id be more than happy to answer your question.
Oh and as far as my fuel mileage, on the way down to Plano I got about 41MPG with the Auto tranny and I was doing about 70MPH most of the way. On the way back to Papillion I got about 46MPG with the 5 Speed and the first 3 hours or so I was fighting some pretty bad wind.
