    Conversion Auto to Manual

    Im going to drop this off here.

    i have 3.6l 2004 CTS automatic.

    have good understanding of most parts, routine service, etc...

    i have put alot of money into my car from intake, battery, coil-over suspension, front end v conversion, offset rims with stretch tires, full exhaust with x pipe.

    now finishing touch converting it to a manual...
    i dont know where to start or shop to go thru if needed.

    any advice or knowledge would be great.

    What coil-overs did you go with? QA1's? When did you get the V bumper installed?


    If you wanted a manual, you should have bought one in the 1st place. Would have made everything easier. Have you found a used Aisin yet?

    You should ask this question in the CTS forum...youll get no coverage here...

    All suspension for the V will fit the CTS just fine...

    whats a used Aisin? Its something you may need for a trans swap. Ask the guys in the CTS forum..

    Converting auto to manual is not a "finishing touch".

    Putting on plastic adhesive backed chrome b pillars is a "finishing touch". But those are tacky. So call it a day. Your car sounds frikin' awesome.
