If you didn't see it you obviously didn't search. That topic has been covered over and over again since this site began.
There are no manual trannys for '99+ GAs, it is possible to make a manual fit but it will take a lot of time, money and fabrication. All three of those have stopped many from attempting this monumental mod.

It will take about 2 times the amount of money that the car is worth to do a swap...this has been discussed since 1999 and no one but GM has successfully made the swap.

The 4 cylinder 99+ GA SE's come with a manual tranny..


But to answer your question...the best place to find a manual tranny for your GA GT, is to go to a junk yard, or maybe even ebay...and do the 3400 to 2.4 swap w/manual tranny swap.

It can be done cheaply if you know how to do the labor. Everyone is going to tell you u can't put a manual in a GT...but they're lying.

no...no it cant...theres still alot of fabrication needed


and how do you know...have you done it? Have you ever SEEN a GAGT with a 5spd? Doubtful

edit: after reading your post again....it wouldnt be a GAGT....it'd be an se with GT cladding lol

No sh!t?! Really!? :eek:

We're talking about GTs in this thread.

And why the hell would you want to swap a 6cyl. for a 4 just to have a manual tranny?!?!?! :wtf
