Yes its possible to change from auto box to manual, i've done it before buts abit more complex than just swaping the box.
To do it you will need
-gearbox
-flywheel
-clutch
-gearbox mounts
-driveshafts
-gearstick and rod
-clutch pedal
-clutch cable

You also need to mod the wiring abit but thats not a hard job to do

You'll be able to bolt a manual box to the auto engine thats no problem, crak bolt pattern is all the same
