why are you wanting to do this?

you will need a different bell housing, most likely tranny mounts, drive shafts, computer to control the transmission. seems like a lot of hassle for a weaker transmission.

5r110 is good stock, but has a lot of room for improvement. Now for towing or the fun of slamming gears, the zf6.

This topic has been covered numerous times before. The 6.0L engine with the 5R110 automatic uses a completely different rear engine cover and PCM from the manual transmission versions. To convert it to a manual is far more work and far more costly than simply selling your automatic and buying a manual 6.0L truck.
