Just buy a car with a standard transmission. To do the swap you need a tranny, clutch pedal install, make sure the shifter fits in your stock automatic shifter location. The dash will say PRND unless swapped with one with the wrong mileage and an ecu swap too. Honestly it's not worth the work. You could put the cash towards a new vehicle and save the headache.
