Just an FYI - if you are converting from an auto to a manual, you will need to do some wiring to fool the ECM into thinking that the transmission is in park after switching to the manual, this can be done using the clutch switches on the clutch pedal if the clutch is from an 07, if it is from an 08-09 you will have to make a switch to get it to work, otherwise the ECM will never command to start the engine. Make sure to get the torque arm from the transmission to the differential also, since your automatic differential uses a separate mount on the front of the differential which is different from the GXP/Redline manual transmission cars.

Hope that helps,
Dave
