I am interested in doing this to my car. I know it's not something for the faint of heart, but I am not faint of heart. I have done numerous engine swaps in SR20DE powered Nissans over the years and probably 30+ clutch jobs in various FWD cars so I'm up to the task. Has anyone done this? I've noticed on Ebay auto trannies for our cars are VERY cheap, on the order of $150 from a search I just did. I assume manuals would be just as cheap. I know I would need a flywheel and clutch, cables or rods depending on which shifting style the Elantra uses, the shifter and the interior pieces, probably main and/or transmission ECU changes, and wiring. Basically if it's doable without cutting and splicing wires and is just a few hundred dollars in parts, it would be worth it to me. I would appreciate comments by anyone who has done this.
