No offense intended but I'm having a hard time justifying the 5 K cost too.
Same here, I looked into a manual swap. I got a pice list of everything you will need. I even threw in lightweight flywheel new clutch, the CSC fix kit from Z1 and triple pass MT radiator. All parts shipped to my house would cost $4,515. Now mind that you could do the work yourself that's the price for a transmission to handle the power of a boosted car.
Also I'm in the process of finding a a totaled MT sport package Z to see if it's cheaper.
