I've never done it, but from what I've read on previous threads, the most common answer seems to be to sell your GT and buy one that's already manual. Ive heard that's much cheaper. Hopefully someone else will chime in to help!

Its only pricey because of labor for the most part.

Well the main reason i am considering a swap is because i got a supercharger and my automatic transmission is not going to be able to withstand all of that power, so when it does go out i will swap it wrather than rebuild an auto. There is a place that will install it for $1000

Yah I'd say sell the car, reinstall blower and everything on new manual car... Th reason I say that is because when you do a manual swap, you have to swap to a manual ecu and everything else, and I know that's expensive... Yah you might be loosing a lil if you just sell the car, but you can still save at least the blower off it for the new manual car you buy...

Not sure if foxes are easier or what but my buddy does them to every stang he buys, mostly foxes, and says they are not that hard. If u do buy a new one, just buy it first swap all your upgrades and put the stocks on yours then sell yours..

Where you from in Ohio???
