    I'd rebuild your tranny, even possibly rebuild it to with stand more power is also an option. Getting a manual would be ALOT of work, not impossible, but I think it would be a challenge to do it and get the reliability you would out of your rebuilt auto. I guess it depends on what you want to do with your car. What are your plans for it?

    i had to have my tranny rebuilt because the idiot of a previous owner had nuetral dropped it on a daily basis(or atleast thats what it looked liked with ahlf the clutches in the pan.

    i had a local shop rebuild it for me, while they were there i had them put in thinner clutches and they made it capable of taking evrything my 3800 will ever put out.

    cost me 1500

    I would not say its cheaper to convert to a M5, but a A4 race build is much easier on everyone. -Tim
