Convert Automatic to Manual Transmission


I have a 2000 V6 Automatic base model. It is now automatic transmission, but I'm missing my manual transmission. How much am I looking at spending for this? What kind of work? Simplicity of the conversion?
Another thing would be the pros and cons of the conversion?

Thanks in advance.

True... I'm pretty sure that the ECU can still be used when going from auto to manual, huh? Where as you need a whole new ECU.... Or is it different for stangs

How long have you had your car? I've had my manual for about a year and a half now and I don't feel it's getting old at all. I don't plan on ever buying another sports car with an auto tranny again (I had 2 prior to my Mustang -an 00 Firebird and an 08 Eclipse) I love the control I have over the vehicle and it keeps 99% of people from even making the comment "I want to drive your car" (I hate it when people say that, nobody gets to drive it but me ).

^No one gets in my driver seat. Period. Not even for shits and giggles.

But seriously the amount of work for a swap... just keep the auto and do like a few people stated and jmod.

I've not heard anything bad about it... well except from manual guys but everyone has there opinions.

You're a state away but I'd trade you everything. I have an auto 52k miles right now and I want to do the swap. I'm going to need to build a tranny though...

I imagine an auto Mustang would be similar to my auto Firebird (I believe they make almost the same power). It's alright for a while but I personally find it fairly boring. I drive my dad's auto 99 Lumina once in a while and I tend to just get bored if the car is doing all the work Different strokes for different folks I suppose

Sure it is possible to switch to a manual, But it would probably be cheaper to buy another car. Because converting to manual will need to change tranny, get the shifter, get the interior panel for the shifter, modify ECU,get a clutch pedal etc.

youngstown is in ohio...so its PA away lol I mean I'd have to see how we could do it if you wanted. The tough thing would be swapping stuff out in a day. Which I don't even think should be that hard.
