Swap a DCT for a Manual

I have a 2015 SE Hatch that im interested in turning into a Manual instead of the PITA DCT that it currently has.
I have scoured the forums and have seen people that have expressed the want to do a swap but no one that has come out and said that they have done it.

Is there something on this forum that someone can point me to in order to get more info on this. Im in the UK with a US car and every thing i search for is coming up UK spec and no one can give me an answer as to part compatability.

If any one has info or can point me to the info I would appreciate it.

Yes, that is one thing I’m wondering about among others. Sending an email to Rebeldevil when I get home

There have been a couple on here do it. At least one old thread has a lot of his progress. Unfortunately neither of them really posted the complete finished result with no issues.

I'm guessing it's a few grand and for a car that depreciates as fast as it does you might scour the net for a 5 speed or move onto an ST which even slightly used are getting cheap.

Just say the price, although on a car worth under 10k, itís not worth it.
