How difficult is it to convert a automatic to a manual car.
Any suggestion whom to contact, and price on parts and labor?
'difficult' is a relative term. A seasoned profession will tell you it's easy, someone whom has done it once will tell it it's incredibly difficult. Without knowing your specific skillset, can't say if it will be 'difficult' for you or not.
As for the 2nd part (that I referenced above), because you mentioned 'labor', any shop will charge an amount for a swap by the hour. The amount of time that it takes is going to cause a bill very large, in the thousands. Most shops will say that it isn't worth the cost because of the value of the car. If you are not going to, or are unable to do the swap yourself, financially it might make more sense to just buy a manual car.
There is a new shop in Texas
that offers a slew of Fiero refurbishing, perhaps ask them for a quote on this service.
I'll dig up the link as a quick search didn't turn it up.
