actually the auto will prob go quicker after you break the 300rwhp mark. been there done that. But I do agree about the fun factor of the 5 speed. too bad you arent in tennessee, we could park em side by side and swap it all out. I am already tired of the cluch thang.....
It is actually an easy swap if you have a rack to lift it on. I did mine in the driveway by myself. I thought the pedals were easy compared to getting the aod out by my self...
I found it was fairly simple to remove the steering column, all the tin around it, and the pedals were pretty easy to remove.
the list of parts other than the trans should be...
1 shifter
2 clutch cable
3 flywheel
4 pedal assy
5 clutch assy with throw out bearing and thrust(pilot) bearing
6 you may have to trim out the shifter are around the tunnel to clear the t5 shifter(I did)
7 new speedo gear for t5
8 get a good quadrant... the stock sucks
9 bolts for the clutch and bell
10 gonna have to cut out the cable hole in the fire wall to move the speedo cable
11 I probably forgot some thing even though I just did this. oh a shift knob/and boot
in a shop this should take someone with very good mechanical skills about 5 hours with all the parts and tools at the ready. it took me a full day on my back and in the sun.I got bad sunburnt too, from the knees down....If you have any questions you can pm me and ill try to help you out with whatever you need. the othe thing to take into coinsideration is if you plan to wire in a clutch pedal safety switch so it wount start without the cluch engaged, I opted not to. Good luck
