Is a manual swap right for you?
Make no mistake, a manual swap is a very labor-intensive process. You want to make sure you are up to the task, before you begin. Once you start, it will be difficult to go back, should you change your mind. In order to do a manual swap, it is reccommended that you have a lift and also have experience removing a transmission from a Volvo. People have done manual conversions without lifts, but it is much more difficult.
