yes, you can convert it to manual, on the floor or column shift. 

 

you'll need all the parts required, why do you want a manual? i regretted changing mine to manual, was a lot of work. 

 

you'd probably struggle to find a parts car for all the bits these days

auto column shift to 3 on tree manual will require a column swap. 
If your going floor shift you can just keep your current column and just mount a trans hump on the floor for the shifter.

ive got a floor shft manual xg ute that i can use as a parts car. is it just a matter of swapping over the box, cutting a hole for the shifter, mounting up a pedal box and swapping the computer?

You'd need to find a crossflow T5 bell housing to mount the gearbox, also will probably need a T5 XF gearbox cross member, the rest would all bolt in.

your XF computer doesn't control auto, its a 3 speed non electronic(so that can stay), the XG computer is heaps different

 

what's wrong with the XG? most people would just fix the XG and have the "better everything" (personally i like the carby XF pushrod engine better, especially on LPG) 

 

don't forget to buy a spigot bearing for the XF engine(won't be able to remove the XG one to be reused)

I've done it over a weekend in the past. These days I'd just leave the auto in...they work,taxis did 1,000,000kms with autos ... might have been replaced a couple of times or so..

Why do you want the 5speed?
