I want to switch my 02 manual engine/transmission into an 01 automatic. Is this possible and what all is involved?

May be I am misunderstanding.

You want to convert an automatic to a standard? Or you want to make a standard into an automatic?

Either way, its a chore. Computer has to be added and wired in to go to auto along with a reflash of the ECM or swap for an auto ECM. Computer delete to go to standard removing the TCM and jumping a few terminals on the ECM or again swapping in a standard ECM. Then you have the pedals, hydraulics, sensors have to be swapped on the engine and emission control systems.

People have done auto to standard. There are a few threads here. Google it.

Standard to Auto, that's where I thought you were going, would be easier to just buy an automatic car.

You have work to do to get around the starting procedures that each type of unit is looking for.
A search here, and on legacygt.com will show what others have had to do.
