Here's a how to on just swaping out a ATX trans from a mk1 to show sort of what you're in for just on the removal:

Now add in the headache of replacing that with a manual trans. It's been done on previous models and imho not worth it on such a new car. Your best bet is to trade it in and take the hit on the depreciation while you still have some value left on the car.
