e4od to zf5: Read Post #1 Before Posting

I know this is a semi-redundant thread but i'm hoping to put a new spin on this topic.

I would like to hear from those who have actually performed a zf5 or zf6 transmission swap on their rigs and no one else. I've read plenty of threads with people bickering back and forth about auto vs manual, but now I would like to know form those who have done it:

1) Was it worth the time/ money
2) Would you do it again given the chance
3) How long did it take
4) Do you like the zf5/zf6 over the automatic or do you wish you'd left the auto

I'm hoping to get some real tech from people that have done it and not a bunch of "well I would do this or that". Thanks guys!
