    5 speed short throw?
    i'm guessing you don't work on cars much eh?

    you need a lot of parts, mechanically its not too difficult, but the parts add up

    If he hasnt worked on cars, then converting to a manual will be one of the HARDEST things to tackle as your first DIY project.

    So, I dont think you should do it. I have, and honestly I shoulda sold the shell for $500 and bought manual shell for the same price, would have been less of a headache.

    But, all in all Im happy... with my conversion.
