5spd swap on a 1990 525i

I found a pretty cheap E34 but it has quite a a lot of miles in the automatic tranny, how hard is it to do a manual swap?

If you want to get junkyard parts remember one thing, if it was wrecked you know it was running/driving. You may not know how well, but it was.

I have been looking for a good thread on a swap, and yours is one of the best i have seen yet.
It will come in use for many people, including me sometime in the future.

I extremely appreciate that Zombie!
Believe me there was alot of prepwork involved for that project. Also same deal here, all the threads I found were only half finished or didnt specify all the parts you could and couldnt use. So I thought Id make the ultimate swap thread, it didnt come as perfect as I liked but its better than all the threads I found sofar so Im calling good!
