Auto to Manual Conversion Cost and ?'s

does anyone have a ballpark figure of the cost to convert my automatic trans to manual. id prefer someone who actually has done it so they know what there talking about and not just throwing random prices on here. thanks

I switched mine to a ZF5... lots of work. as far as a price? I got lucky and bought a truck without the motor and everything for my swap was there... I let go of 500 for the truck. If you were to buy piece by piece I would say you would be in around 1500+...at least. Let me know if you need a complete list of what you need.

For the steering column I just took the steering wheel trim off and removed the auto gear selector then re installed the trim.

if you could give me the complete parts list that would be great. im actually hoping to be buying a 95 powerstroke with a 5spd and building the engine up and swapping that motor and trans for mine and my auto so id probably have everything but if not a parts list would still be great.. thanks
