Default Weird thought here

Yeah ive always thought that manual transmissions always had a slight advantage if you knew how to drive them. So is it possible to convert an Automatic to a Manual? I know if it it is it wouldn't be cheap but to have a manual bonny would be kinda sick and 1 of a kind from what i know of( newer bonnies not the old school muscle cars lol)

From what I've read on them, people bolt them to LS1'*, LS2'*, and LS3'* in fieros all day long, and they're designed to take 400lb-ft of torque with their dual mass clutch.

I don't know. I've been reading some pretty negative feedback about them on G6 forums

I've thought about having a manual. I think a Manumatic would be the way to go
