73 Camaro Manual Convesion

Here are my stats:

73 Camaro
350 turbo trans
3.73 gear
Full length Headers 1-3/4

I would like to convert this car over to manual transmission 4-speed, T-10 or Muncie, something strong. My question is the linkage, how difficult is the linkage setup? that kinda scares me and then cutting a hole in the floor of my baby :-( . Once I get the linkage right the other stuff is easy. Can anyone help me with that linkage, what tips can you offer I suspect I will have to remove the headers, to install I hope that I do not have to by shorties after the install.

Also will this make my car worth more on the seller's market, it was not an original manual. It will be sold as a modified car if ever sold, will the conversion be worth it?

Any extra tips or advice will be greatly appreciated on this I know you folks out there can offer some great help.

You should definately do this conversion. I've done 2 in the past year. I'm not a mechanic and never had any training. I just love old cars and hate automatics. I just put in "73 camaro clutch" on an ebay search and you can get new pedals and linkage for under $200. Just pick up a tranny, bellhousing etc. and your in business. Pick up an assembly manual for your car also, it will have detailed pictures of how to set up linkages. If you have any problems just post them on here, these guys know everything. Good luck!
