    Yes, but it will be a lot or work. You will need to purchase the needed parts including a transmission tunnel from a M6 car. Clutch pedal with brackets, slave cylinder, driveshaft, trans mount with cross member, and so on. Lots of time and money here. I would just throw a converter in and make shifting noises.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

    +1 A stalled auto trans is a fun thing to have. We have a 3,200 in ours and it is a whole different animal, especially at the track. This being said, you can swap out to a manual but it is quite a bit of work and there is significant expense. If you source a used transmission and other parts, you will at least want to purchase a new flywheel, clutch and clutch hydraulics.
