Is it worth buying a 95 240SX SE Automatic then converting it to a manual?
Any bad sides to it? or just wait for a manual?

it depends. if you are going to swap an SR or an RB into it, i would wait until i get the engine.

Yeah, if you are going to do a swap go ahead and buy the auto. If not you have to do some heavy thinking. It isn't that hard to do the swap to a 5-speed and if you can get the auto really cheap it's probably worth it. I know there are a few exceptions but most automatics haven't been beat on too bad either.

Once you find the tranny you are going to put in the rest of the parts aren't that expensive and there are plenty of installation pages on the internet.

Two of my friends found auto 240s for can't-pass-up cheap, then converted to manual. They said it's easy, the holes are already in the firewall, all you need are the components.
