Realky not worth the money for a 21 year old car. It can be done but the switch will be three to four times what the car is worth

That's right and don't forget the electronics involved also, so you would need a donor car of the same year with the automatic setup to transfer over. Big job, lot of labor involved.

Easier to sell the current car and pick up a manual.
