i want to convert my 2010 SS Auto to Manual
 
Can any expert explain what parts exactly that i need to complete the conversion ?

I know most of you will say why don't you trade your car with a M6 . Well i can't . so please i need help here

Cost no object it can be done, everything after the block is different, well so is the block really. I would order better paddles for the steering wheel, and get a good transmission tune to firm and quicken the shifts first. If you want mad kick in the pants feeling get the 3.91 gears for the rear differential. Seriously if you can afford to do the conversion you can afford to take the loss and find an already manual car. Mines Auto, I have these paddles http://www.vitesse-motorsports.com/c...leshifters.htm and this rear http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=283575, and since your over seas I'd recommend http://www.jreperformanceparts.com/s...10-camaro.html for the tuning and other parts, headers etc.

Sure why not,thats what I would recommend.

For the price and the bother it wouldn't be worthwhile to do the M6 swap

I am right in the middle of my 6L80E to TR6060 swap.

I plan on doing a writeup when I get finished.

I'm not a transmission expert in any way, but from what I've read and gathered over posts, obviously you need a clutch, trans., driveshaft, clutch pedal, shifter assembly, and center console. I would also swap gears. Since you're running 3.27, you wouldn't have a lot of "giddy up".

Finally I am so glad someone is doing it

NEGXXIS 05-15-2013 05:53 AM

I have most of the mechanicals finished.

Need the transmission cooler lines BADLY! but cant find any used ones..new is rather expensive.

After that...all I have left is the electrical

Why not?

I'm actually looking to go the other way - I wanna get rid of the crap 6060 and go with a 4L80E.

Yes.... IF....I can get it cranking and moving under its own power to load it into my enclosed trailer..LOL

Two major parts left...
1. My wiring harness is supposed to be delivered friday afternoon (hard to explain right now how I plan on doing the wiring)
2. Finally got some transmission cooling lines on the way (not sure yet of when they will get here)

Not sure what else I am going to run into ... but hopefully not anything major to keep me from getting to F Body Gathering

Ace i just went from the TR6060 to 4L80E and i love it. If anyone is looking for a TR6060 i still have mine and will sell it.

woodside783 05-16-2013 11:15 AM

I hope u get it finished
