As some of the others have said, may be cheaper and alot less hassle if you changed the car. But I would too go for the manual option:

Inorder to do the conversion- you will obviously need the manual box, gear linkage, manual gearknob and centre console, flywheel and clutch....................and from memory: you would also need to swap the end of the crank (bearing) over from yours to the manual version inorder to mount the flywheel.

Is possible but alot of hassle.

As for the 5/6 auto option: remeber doing something similar a few years back but it was on a merc......................even more hassle, not so much for getting everything bolted in but the electrics.wiring and control module was a headache.
