Default Auto - Manual conversion

Gents
If I had access to a complete manual conversion from a 1984 944 with the 5 speed box to include any and all associated parts to complete the conversion would it fit or is it a no goer.
Alternatively he has the 6 speed box from a CS manual but doesn't have all the bits to do the conversion...can I mix n match to include the 6 speed conversion.

I just cannot come to grips with the 4 spd auto...its a slug and even driving it in manual mode its not real good

I have a number of the 6 spd conversion parts. Trans crossmember & mount, shift rod, shifter.

I would also expect John Graves from Just Joshin Porsche Parts to have nearly everything you may need as he has recently parted a 968 or two.

That makes get a lil excited but when you shop from a number of sources you don't get the benefit of a bundle deal and he wants $6500 for about half the parts and doesn't have a RHD pedal box.
I feel its going to be $10k worth of parts etc...and it makes no sense to pay that sort of coin.
Love the car but better off selling it and starting again.
