5 speed swap
I have been thinking about this same idea. First off though, My swap to a 5 speed would be for a 2.7L V6. I'm wondering if the 2.7L in the Stratus R/T's is a longitudinal mount like the Intrepid or transverse mount like many other front drives? If it is infact a longitudinal like the intrepids, I would believe there is much hope for this conversion. Expense would be the cost of the 5 speed tranny and other 5 speed needed stuff like clutch/brake pedal, shifter, shifter cables ,etc.
