Why didn't you just get a stick in the first place?? Or is it just curiousity? I can tell you this, it won't be cheap! If I were to guess, I'd say upwards of 4-5k, you have to figure in labor from taking the auto out and putting the manual in, don't know if they would have to do too much "restructuring" per say.

Sourcing the parts is harder than the labor itself. Clutch pedal, lines, slave/master cylinders, pressure plate, clutch, flywheel, tranny and other misc. crap. Being a new car, cost and availability of parts could be pricey to say the least. The labor isn't hard if you know someone who can do it. Most tranny swaps can be done over a weekend easy. At least that has been the case with our Z32 300ZX's and SR20 240SX's.

i figured it would be pretty ridiculous, needed a car in a hurry and it was faster to go auto than stick with the yaris. i'm still damn pleased with the yaris but i will probably look into selling it and picking up one with a stick sometime in the near future. thanks for the quick replies!

Yes, trading your auto for a standard shift Yaris can be less time consuming/expensive than doing a conversion, and there will not be any warranty issues for sure.
Wish you good luck in finding the car that you really like, and don't get too spoilt by the convenience of the auto too much in the mean time.
