Default Auto to manual conversion on an 01 base

The auto tranny on my 01 base model PT is on its way out and Id much prefer to replace it with a manual transmission. Im pretty well sure Im going to go through with it. I am only wonder which trans I could swap in and where I could get one for a decent price. TIA

I've never done one, but plan on a computer, wiring harness, clutch pedal assy., console/shifter assy., slave cyl, etc. There are at least 2 different 5 speeds. Others know more.

It would likely be easier and cheaper to simply buy a PT with a standard tranny and swap out all the good stuff from yours.
myckee and circus like this.

I have to agree, the days of mixing differing transmissions and years are over. Even if you replace the ecm (brains) and wiring. You could find the correct transmission @ Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market
PS I have a manual 5 speed in my cruiser and it ain't all that great. Those shift cable linkages suck, specially if your in a hurry.
