Don't bother swapping it for a stick. The Toyota 3S-FE engine and trans combo is one of the best-mated, longest-running engine-trans combos ever. My wife had one that had 250k with a bad trans and still ran when we sold it, and we sold another one with 150k when she wanted something newer, no trans or engine problems at all. If you want a stick, buy a stick, but swapping is much too involved for most.
