Default 1997 3.8 auto to manual tranny swap.

Hello, this is my first feed lol. I just made the mistake of buying a v6 mustang.. to top it off its automatic. I am looking to swap the transmission to a 5 speed manual transmission. I'm not a know it all or have any clue what I'm doing. I have friends and family that knows a lot about cars and willing to help me do the swap. I was told to find out what transmission will fit in my year car.. I need to know everything that I will need to do this swap. Please let me know! Thank you! P.S. I don't care if its not worth it and im not selling or buying any other cars..

Sell the car and buy one with a stick.

The manuals use:
Different ECU
Different Flywheel
Different Wiring Harness
Different Radiator

and a handfull of other things.
