Question 5 speed swap ?

how difficult will it be to swap out my auto with a 5 speed in my ex sedan ? does anyone know where i can find some for a good price? and is it better to find a package for a new engine that comes with a 5 speed?

It's a pain in the ass but it's very possible. No need to swap the whole motor, just the transmission
