I think the hardest part was the removing of the pedals and installing the manual pedals. Other than that it was pretty easy. Trans lines I tried to save but just ended up breaking them to get them out.

Everything else came out pretty smooth. Just take your time with it. Took me about a week with basic hand tools, a jack and jack stands. I would suggest draining the auto trans fluid so when you pull the dipstick tube it doesn't come pouring out.

I'm not sure about the neutral safety switch in your car but on nine I just cut the plug off the aod and put 2 wires together to make them a closed loop then just spliced the other 2 into the manuals safety switch on the side of the trans.

Just make sure your getting EVERYTHING to make it look factory. You wouldn't be able to tell my car was originally an auto unless you crawled underneath and saw the spliced neutral plug. I even have a working neutral safety switch do you have to press the clutch to start the car.

Well I'm going to lift mine up tomarow and get started, i still don't have the pedal assembly and flywheel. The fly wheel is going to be freshly resurfaced when I get it. It looks like you may need to steal the end off a manuals drive shaft. My kit came with a complete drive shaft from a manual so something must be different there.

Do you need to change the PCM to do the swap and if not how do you eliminate the auto shifts points from the pcm

Thanks I just got done reading that you can retune for the swap , are you guys modifying your wire harness or did you get the harness with the trans? And aren't the trans sensors different between the auto and manual also?

I talked to a guy who specializes in stangs and he said there is no need for a wire harness

Are you gonna get a Steeda clutch quadrant and firewall adjuster? I hear the plastic quadrant crack easily. Mine hasn't yet, but this is my next purchase. I thought since your swapping, now is a good time to do it.

I thought Steeda made a complete kit, but I didn't see it on AM.

Re: Going to pick up my 5 speed tranny!!!

Pedals and getting the manual to go into the engine and clutch ext. Its the small stuff that can get you, we got the manual lined up and went to get the top two bolts in and noticed one of the wires for the exhaust sensors was in the bellhousing so we had to take it off, pull the wire and connector out and start all over again.

Well my swap is almost done, the car drives good so far, I still have to get the cover over the clutch fork and take out the tricky auto trans fluid lines that are in the radiator pretty good.
