Switching to manual is a lot of work, my plan for when my trans goes is probably buying a built c4, it wont lose as much hp through it as an aod and autos are lil less of a pain to drive on the street and more consistent at the track.

Took out a perfectly good AOD and swapped in a manual. Wasn't as hard as some think. The pedals were the hardest and after I took out the drivers seat and steeering column, the pedals went right in. The manual is alot more fun but theauto was more consistant.
