The transaxle. The clutch, the Engine flywheel, Ring gear, Unknown if need different starter
The shift linkage from transaxle to cabin. Thecenter consol from donor car. The shift boot, shfter parts, shift knob. Bolts etc from cabin. The assy which holds clutch pedal, interlock for clutch and starter. Probably the parking brake assy is different from manual to auto, so all that cabin stuff in center consol.
Unknown if need the manual cars' computer.
(If you have to pass emissions, the whole project is unlikely to ever pass.. just a heads up)

I AM going to swap to a manual, either the 5-speed or the SVT 6-Speed, but finding information on the wiring and computer is difficult. I need to know what computer I need and what wiring I need to change.

I've done the atx to getrag swap an used the stock atx ecu it's a bit of wiring but not to bad u need to get the svt trans harness an wire it into the engine harness. I'll scan in my documents and post them for you. You also need the axles shift cables and shifter assembly. And svt crank position sensor. Then you have to have your tuner turn off the atx features in the ecu so you don't get a check engine light.
