anyone looked into gear swaps for an auto?

I've been thinking about doing a gear swap for my auto tC... Mostly just to get better ratio's, but maybe if I could to throw in a 5th gear...

has anyone seen/heard talk of this before? I don't want to take it down to a shop to have them look at it and go "yeah, we can do it." just to tell them I don't have any cash right now. That brings up another much does that type of thing usually cost? This is the first car I've had a chance to do mod's to and I have no idea how much something like that might cost...

well, if I'm ever going to do it, I know I'll do it/have it done "right." I refuse to ever do anything halfassed. I'm basicly trying to come up with a list of things to take note of if I had it done to talk about with any shops I go to. I'm less concerned with adding a gear as I would be changing the current ratio(s) to something more like the manual's, or possibly better.

All in all, my plans are to hit 250whp through supercharger, massaging out what I can, and possibly a piggyback chip. After that, I want to look into the gear ratio thing a lot more, which would be my next step. After that...I have no real plans. Yet.
