    Swap the intake manifolds and TB's as well, the IACV (or EACV, same thing) is built into the TB on autos and is only a 2 wire instead of a 3 wire manual *Which is located on the side of the IM as you said*, it will run like CRAP if you try to run the manual one and will throw a CEL

    as far as IM gasket:
    Autozone sells them, Napa sells them, Carquest sells them etc etc
