i know this question has been answered numerous times before... and the only answer seems to be "an arm and a leg" >.< i'm pretty sure my tranny (ATX) is messed ans dying... so i was wondering if ANYONE has actually done a ATX to MTX conversion? and how much it is.
or... if i was to get the ATX fixed how much should i be looking for (i know it depends but a ball park figure).
thanx.

Well I haven't actually done it yet....
I'm planning hopefully depending on cash to get it done in the next month. I've been talking to the guys at the shop and to get my ATX converted to a MTX with a short shifter it will be about $1500CDN. Hope this helps. I would suggest finding a Mazda specialist who's already done this. I've been looking into this for a long time and most of the people tell me it's a waste of time and that it would take at least two weekend and be very expensive, the guy at the dealership actually laughed at me. Find a guy who knows and talk to them it's acutally not that bad.

In Canada that conversion would cost you around $10,000 the same price if you were to buy another 93 or 94 MX6! I would advise you to rebuild the transmission which costed me $2800CAD! Oh wait, ATX would cost more....oh well, there you go.

Thanks.
Maybe we can go in together... I am sure he'll be able to give us a better price if we both do it at once ^^
And I live in mississauga so etobicoke is really close by.
I went to Mr. transmission and the guy told me he's done it on a integra before and the bill came out to about 4-5 gs.

Ya I found that a lot of guys like that didn't know exactly what it involved so they made it really expensive. I was at the shop I normally go to and they were doing it to a Del Sol so I talked to the guy and it didn't seem like the big deal everyone's made it out to be and they gave me the number for the Mazda guy. If you want we can ask if they'd give us a break for sure if we go at the same time. Email me I'm not totally sure if I'm going to be able to do it but if we get the price knocked down that betters my chances. Email me and we'll talk for sure!!!
