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".

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

Update:
I got my car running yesterday with the manual transmission.

Cant drive it just yet, still waiting on the cooler lines to get here so I can install them and top off the fluid. And I still need to bleed the clutch.

Now my only problem is that I still cannot remove the key from the ignition....
Going to try to correct that today by jumping some wires, and if that doesnt work I have a friend that runs an automotive shop and he has a tech2... and hopefully I can load a manual file into the BCM so it will release my key.
