It's definitely possible. I just completed this very swap. I have a 2014 Ford Focus SE. It previously had a DPS6 (6 speed dual clutch automatic) transmission, I swapped it out for a MTX75 (5 speed manual) transmission.

It took me between 80-100 hours to complete, over a 1.5 month period (mainly working on it on the weekends).

I also documented the entire build process on my YouTube channel. If you want to check it out, search YouTube for: Ford Focus - Automatic to Manual Transmission Swap

Cost me about $1,500~ in parts. I could have saved $150-$200 if I had shopped around, but...
Thanks for the videos and the parts list - this is very helpful.

Did you also have to get any seal kits since you were using a used transmission? Also, it looks like the slave cylinder comes with the clutch kit and the master cylinder is part of the clutch pedal, correct?
