07 420 es to foot shift

I have a 07 es 420 and the es is giving me problems. I know lots of ppl like the es but I don't so I'd like to switch over to foot shift. I know it can be done I just don't rightly know how. So what would I need to do it(parts wize)? And what would need to be modafide .?..?

Welcome to da forums... You'd need the shift shaft,shifter arm,ecm,change clutch,and gear(or use the one you have which I believe would wind up giving you a gear reduction),and possibly the wiring harness,but haven't ever done a conversion of this type on a Wrencher,and I'd simply swap the engine,and ecm out for a complete good running manual engine(you most likely could sell your es version,and ecm for more than the manual engine would cost)..What exactly is it doing that is giving your so much trouble?? There's several knowledgeable guys over on the HighLifter forums who have already done this es to manual conversion btw...

In other words...........It's easier said than done. You might see if any dealer[s] have a manual shift machine that you could trade for.
