'78 Camaro AutoTrans to Manual conversion?

I'm working on fixing up my first car and I'm on a lower budget but I would like to make it into Manual and was wandering how hard it would be and how much it would cost?

thanks

I just recently bought everything for a swap from a 75 Camaro on ebay(trans,clutch,linkage,etc.). I paid 500$ for it.
Welcome to the forum.

I have an 80 Camaro.I have a 200-4r in it now and might just keep that.The overdrive is nice. I think the 75 and the 80 linkage are the same.I have an older 4 speed and I am going to have to change the yolk but I also have that.
When I saw the trans on ebay.It was a trans and bellhousing.I told him that I had an 80 Camaro that I was wanting to swap from an auto and would he happen to have any pedals,flywheel,etc?
He emailed me back and said he pulled the trans out off a 75 and I could take everything.I went ahead and got it since got everything for the complete swap.
