So... it happened about 2 weeks back, My stock auto trans went cya later on my way to work and spewed trans oil along with me smoking up the whole 401. My guy just got back to me today and apparently the pressure pump inside my trans blew off, This is not my daily driver so it has now come to decision time with this thing.

Would it be worth it to go ahead and just swap out with a W58? I mainly just use this thing for sliding and fun or should i just get another used auto from someone and go with that?

Orrrrrr part out....?

Well a manual transmission would make sliding easier. If you have the cash to buy one and get all else that’s needed then go for it.

Since there's no "other", I'll just post it here. Sounds like this is sort of a project-ey/funtime car. I'd just go for an AR5 swap and be done with it. I've never had a factory manual, so I don't know for sure but everything I've read points to them being junk. This is of course all dependent on your budget.
