    What would you guys do?

    Ive had my car for 2 months now. My previous 2 cars were manual. My T/A is automatic and I miss driving stick more than anything. I always said my T/A would have to be a stick but because of the situation that came up with the one i have, i couldnt pass this deal up. I dont want to get rid of the car at all but i want a 6 spd so bad. Now my question to you guys is, should i swap a 6spd in or should i go ahead with my original plans of buying heads/cam/stall this winter. I dont have the money to do both right now but i know the car would be 100x's more fun with a 6spd. Also about how much would it cost me to get a built T-56 and all the necessary parts. Im completely willing to trade my built A4 and give some cash up to get everything i need for the swap. Give me your input!
    99 TA-T56 swapped, Lid, TB Bypass, LS6 Intake, !EGR, !AIR, Custom Cam, Mids, O/R-Y, 3:73s, Cutout, Flowmaster.
    A4 numbers w/ mids only 320RWHP 333RWTQ
    Cam numbers and track times soon.

    You made your bed might as well sleep in it. I would go with a cam and a new stall converter. Driving a stalled auto can be just as fun a a stick shift.

    Haha i know what you mean but im just so stumped, i miss the feeling of how much control you have over the car in a manual. I do know that a stalled auto can be very fun though.
