I had a friend of mine who did an Auto to Manual swap in an old 96' G20 - There was a lot involved and it took a few months - Between cutting into the wall and adding the pedal, swapping out the tranny and mounts, figuring out sensors and wiring, recalibrating the ECU, adjusting the cable, replacing the gear box, replacing the shifter and the console parts etc.

It's a cool project, but definitely involves some down time, money and certainly extensive research.
2012 Candy Red SE Manual... I smell serious trouble.
