I'm not overly thrilled with having to of gone with a 5 SPD conversion on mine but I feel better in knowing it can take alot more abuse than the Auto. The 5 spd conversion wasn't really any harder than just taking out the auto and putting the manual in although you do have to change the pedals and a little wiring it still wasn't any major task. It took Zero extra fabrication........all the nut plates and mount holes are already in the chasis ........oh and the drive shaft and flywheel have to changed. Talk to JTimalus ....I got the whole kit from him including an RPS stage 3 clutch.

I have an auto tranny in my 89t. I haven't driven it, but I was looking to make ~400RWHP. I read somewhere they could only hold ~350 RWHP. I thought about it, and I want to eventually, get a 5 speed swap cause I like the feel of the turbo spooling. I almost get bored while driving an automatic. I HATE electrical wiring. Tis why I am kinda hesitant on doing it, cause i know you have to do something with the tail light wiring. Oh well just my 2 cents.
The electrical wiring is not a big task. I haven't hooked my reverse lights up yet but thats just because I'm to lazy. The speed sensor plugs right in with no modification and the neutral safety switch just needs to be jumped. I haven't bothered with the cruise control yet though. Doing a 5 SPD conversion isn't really any harder than putting the auto back in. Just have to do a few more things...........nothing overly taxing though
