Auto Engine to Manual Tranny?

Is it possible to bolt up an Automatic v6 to a Manual Tranny?

It's more than just a simple bolt- on thoug. Ecu, pedals, not to mention jacking up your car at least 4 feet in the air. People say it's better to just buy a manual mustang. Someone here has done it recently. Use the search bar and maybe you'll find the thread

I have a manual, but was wondering if I could get an automatic engine to bolt up to it?

It'll bolt up. Just take the torque convertor off and use your manual bits instead!

So it'll just bolt up that easy? Wouldn't need to really change anything? Just take torque converter off and throw the clutch and bell housing stuff back onto that?

The motors are the same, manual or automatic, it's just the ecu, pedals, and clutch that is the problem.

It isn't that difficult to do, just be sure to get the right pedals, clutch and ecu. It's also a good idea to jack the car up more than 4 or 5 feet while doing so.

The motor used in the automatic mustang and the manual mustang are exactly the same. So yes, if your taking a v6 out of a car that is automatic and putting it into a car that is a manual, it will work no problem. It sounds like someone else will be doing this for you or with you, so they'll know what to keep and what to take off.
