manual tranny
flywheel from manual car (not 100% on that one...)
new clutch kit
clutch master and slave cylinder
clutch line (master to slave)
clutch pedal with spring and bolt
brake pedal from manual car

you will need to bypass the inhibitor switch... just unhook the wires going to the switch on the auto tranny and jump the wires together.

I did the auto to 5 speed swap about 4 years ago...

Hi coldy 260--------------Yes, you will need the flywheel from the m/t car, and in addition to what John has listed, you will also need the clutch pilot bearing. It may come with the clutch kit. One other thing you may need to deal with is the difference in the center console. Your a/t car should have a plate attached to the front of the shifter opening that will need to be removed. You may also need to use a shift lever from a 280Z or trim the console to accomodate the 5th gear position. Good luck!
