Default 6R80 to mt82 swap

I have a 2017 ecoboost automatic and would like to find someone that is wanting to swap transmissions.

Might be more cost effective to trade your whole car for a manual version...

Considering about the only cost would be shipping, no it would not be more cost effective...

You'd also have to swap PCMs, pedal boxes, shifter mechanisms, supporting hardware and possibly even wiring harneses unless you can find a shop willing to provide that level of programming for the PCM.

Newer Autos are all electronic so to simply swap the tranny also involves turning off all the auto routines in the PCM (most shops can't or won't do that).

Ford will only program a PCM to match the car's VIN. If you try to have them program your Auto PCM to a manual version they won't do it because your VIN number shows it was programmed from the factory as an Auto so the only programs available to them for your car VIN are auto programs.

So while there's explicit cost as in $ there's also implied cost of time and energy in performing the swap and figuring out all the potential and real problems of the swap.

I've you've got all that other stuff already figured out or have the time and resources, then yeah, it might be cost effective for you.
