Yes it would be cheaper to convert to a manual (Go figure) Depending how its done etc it could could you anywhere between $1000 - $2500 for a Manual conversion.
4k for a rebuild...man thats a rip off...i got mine done in my old ea (yep a 4 speeder) a few years back for $1600...admitedly that was for a 6, but the differences b/w a box for a 6 and an 8 is not that huge to justify a $2400 difference.....
i got it done at CATS in sydney
