a swap is possible. as far as a i know, it does not need to be customized. but you will need to replace your ECU, shifter, shift linkage, master and slave cylinders, and compression lines. maybe some other stuff. i dont know since i have a manual to begin with i have never looked into it.

you can get the SCT ship to really improve your ATX though. it can change your shiftpoints and such. that will atleast make your ATX servicable. (though it probably would not like forced induction much....)
