probably not worth it unless you can find the parts cheap and do it yourself.

you need a lot, and it is a lot of work. Unless you are really attached to your car, its better to get a new one. But heres off the top of my head the parts i used. Also, the gearing changes drastically, as the auto final drive is like 3.91 and manual is between 2.9 and 3, so that makes top speed barely 120, and a horrible freeway cruising speed rpm, so a different geared differential would be a good idea as well.

clutch kit with flywheel
driveshaft with guibo
slave cyl with hose
master cyl with hose
clutch and brake pedal housing
shifter linkage-almost $200 worth of dealer parts
possible new tranny brace
pilot bearing

Then there is some wiring to make the car start, and also to have reverse lights and cruise control. Finish with some fluids, and that should be about it.

not noticable at all. Everything is bolt-on stuff, all fitting very nicely. If you have knowledge to change a clutch, you'll figure it out. Oh, and get a bently manual.
