    Auto Matic Gear box Q to manual

    ok guys,
    Ive got a 4 speed auto gear box, Is there there any way i can improve this gear box, to change gears faster, more responvie, Maybe is there a 5 speed auto box or summit out there from VX that i can change to.

    or if possible change it to an Manual or to one of those Auto/Manual gear boxes?

    I know its a bit far fetched, But this auto gear box, disnt change quickly, It revs right up then changes when u put ur foot down,

    Sell the car and buy a manual is the best bet.

    Tried replacing the fluid in the box. Sticky changes are usually due to knackered ATF.

    Swapping the actual box itself is easy enough, but you'd have to fit a flywheel to the engine (there won't be one), then there's all the clutch pedal, gear linkages, and ECU changes.
