Automatic to Manual Transmission swap.

I found a manual transmission with 85k on it for 150$. Says it was tested and works well.
Ive always wnated to do a tranny swap.
When he says he has a manual tranny, is that all i need? Im sure theres like 100 other parts i need to do the swap as well correct?
Where can i go to learn all the peices im going to need in order to do a successful swap?
And then i have toms Tune, what kind of stuff will i have to do tune wise. Will i have to reset the Car and Transmission ECU codes? can tom do that with his tune?

Ive never read about transmissions and theres not a thread in here about how to do the swap so please help me out!

What have you got for CEL's??
Are you using the ATX computer?
I'm going to get an SCT from Tom and see what we can do.

Thanks

I have a manual parts ZX3 and a few other manual swap parts in my room. I can sell you everything you would need minus the trans. Just hope the trans matches the cable and shifter.
