The easiest and cheapest is to sell the car and buy a 5-speed model. The work that it requires and the cost for everything is just not worth it. It is just not as simple as putting a 5-speed in. Your car is also computer controled, by the time you are done the swap, what you will spend. you could of bought a 5-speed model and put a tranny in the other one. Cut your losses and sell it and buy a 5-speed model. Best of luck, hope this helps.

Agreed, there's no way to do this less than what it would cost to just buy a stick equipped car.

If you can do the work yourself it can be done. I wanted to do it but since the car is not in my name my granpa wouldn't let me. An h22 will fit in a 2.3 not sure about a 2.2. But you have to get the brake assembly and everything to go with the transmission. I would advise if you can't do the work yourself then don't do it.
