I know someone back on the I-club has done this. He was out west somewhere, but I think he posted about it. If you haven't already, a search for AT to MT switch should hopefully bring it up.

As far as I know, as long as you swap the drivetrains, you should be alright with things. As for rewiring the ECU. Whew, sounds like a good job for a summer weekend or something. If this is a real plan for you, I'd be willing to help. :biggest:


Edit: Found a few, here they are..\
Search under member name MPREZYA and you'll find some better info. Hope this helps.
