Excellent write up SinCity. I have done this conversion myself a couple of times now and it is very straight forward. Especially if you have a donor car.

Just a few things though -

All four motor mounts and bolts/nuts[/quote]You only need the 3 gearbox mounts, the side engine mount is the same.

Manual trans axles, connector shaft, and hubs
Auto shafts will work, but you will need to use the manual intermediate shaft. Hubs are the same.

The front struts are different, but you can use the auto trans struts
I have never seen different front struts between auto and manual, what was different about yours?
Wire harness (the one that runs along radiator support, LF fender, and into fuse box on driver‘s kick panel)
Wire harness (alternator harness, goes from alternator to fuseable link box under hood)
You do not need to change any wiring harnesses. There is only a very small amount of wiring needed to make the car run. I have outlined it in this post -

Alternator from 5 speed car
From what i have read on this site, ATX turbo alternators have the highest amp output of any F2 powered car, might be better to leave the auto one in?

The struts are different part numbers for the auto and manual. I am not sure what the differences are (valving?) but I did run around on the auto struts for a while until I got my new ones.

The engine mount is different. IIRC the manual mount is offset by about two inches on the turbo GT. I don't know if they are different on the non-turbo cars.

I never tried the auto driveshafts to see if they would work, but I do know there were differences between the two.

You are right that the auto alternator has a 10 amp higher output. I don't remember if the connector was different between the two, but I did change mine to the manual alternator just to keep things simple.

Did you use an online translator to write this post? If so you should try a different one.
If not WTF.

I can only guess what you're asking, I believe this thread has some answers:
GT AUTO to 5SPEED SWAP
