Honestly.. It would be a lot easier and cheaper to have the auto built, put in a shift kit, maybe a small stall. A lot of people do prefer manuals such as myself but in your case having the auto built would be the way to go. It'll also save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

swapping a T5 in place of an auto trans can be done with factory parts. first find a T5 bell housing for the 2.3 motor. that is the hardest part. after that it is just collecting all the little parts and pieces, like a clutch pedal, clutch cable, flywheel, clutch system, etc. since you plan on turboing the motor, i suggest stepping up to a V8 T5 as they are much stronger than the 4 or six cylinder versions, they just dont have the deep first gear the four cylinder version does, no biggie though, just run a bit more rear gear, IE a 4.10 gear instead of a 3.73.

as long as you are getting parts for the rear axle you have, they all fit.

once you pull the rear cover, you will see a total of four bolts holding in two large caps. remove the axles and the bolts and the carrier drops out of the housing. the pinion gear must be pressed out. you them unbolt the ring gear from the differential. if you havent done this kind of work before, it is best left to the pros as there are tools you need when putting things back together again, that most people dont have.

only you can decide for yourself, but if you do it yourself to save on the labor, and get the adjustments wrong and ruin a good ring and pinion set, you are on the hook for a new set, and they are not cheap. best to call around first and get a quote for how much it would cost to have a shop install the new gears for you.
