A lot of people will tell you it's cheaper to trade in the car for one with a manual transmission, though I would like to hear what everyone has to say.

I would agree. Trade in car, but not for a 15.

With a Trans swap you will need to swap rear end gears and not sure on driveline length. Lots of hidden costs.

Check the 11-14 v6 section, there area few people who have attempted the swaps and wrote it all down for us, basically isn't cost effective unless you can get all the pieces for dirt cheap, and don't ever plan to sell the car because it's a PITA to register all that stuff properly. Upside, more modding potential, downside is that all those mods are towards fixing the problematic mt82 and making it work like it should.

Stock ratio with the auto will be pretty high for a manual trans. He will likely need a gear swap to a 3.31-3.73 range instead of a 3.15

I had a V6 auto looked into manual swap and found trading to same year GT with a MT82 was cheaper

I'm so used to seeing manual to auto swaps lately it never occurred to someone wanted to do the opposite.
