Converting V-6 auto-->manual

Will I benefit at all from changing my auto to manual? What parts would be needed to change?

well there are many benifits. the car becomes 100x more fun to drive, half a second faster, cheaper to maintain, better gas milage, less problems (if you dont drive horrible) thats.

i would trade my car for a manual if i was you cuz your resale will be worthless.... if you swap in a manual. and probably cost more, 5 speeds are cheaper anyway.

its a VERY BAD Idea to swap a manual in a brand new car..... you should have never even thought of such a thing, you should have got a maual they are 750 bucks cheaper brand new......

232Stang, I un-edited them. I was curious as to why because I saw no real reason, I reposted them.
