I may be getting a 2G AWD for CHEAP, and was wondering if it would be a difficult task to convert to manual transmission... would it be much like the 1G swap or different?

I've swapped a FWD 2G to manual. Its much easier than swapping a 1G from what I hear. You dont even have to remove the steering rack or any of that like you do with a 1G. Go for it, I didnt consider the job too hard - Just time consuming. Finding the parts is probably the hardest part. Good luck!

2g's are very easy you do not have to take the rack out, only the steering column. drill 3 holes for the master cylinger, and cut the hole for the shifter cables. One of the layers has already been cut as a template. Everything else is a bolt on.

Search for a 5spd comparable to the auto you can get cheap. Take your time and search search search.

If the price difference is less than around 1500 I would not go through the swap. Cheap parts will cause trouble. Well maybe if you're lucky you get good parts dirt cheap, but I am cursed and learned me self a lesson. Buying good parts will definately cost you.

So the question would be can you get good quality parts for the 2G AWD swap CHEAP ?

I've heard that the 1G's are a little more difficult only in the aspect of drilling the holes for the clutch pedal assy. Other than that it's basically the same thing. I've done my 97AWD and I wouldn't call it easy nor a bolt on considering the labor and time. ;)
