Default Converting auto to manual

Im having a hell of a time finding a 5sp awd 93-95 impreza but ive found a ton of automatic cars. Im going to have a jdm front clip and I am seriously thinking of doing something like this unless its way to much work to add to my list of way to much work.

Speaking of Auto to Manual, they say you need a petal box.. but at least on my 95 Impreza L How in the hell are you going to have room for a 3rd petal?

the brake pedal in a manual is half the size of the giant brake pedal in a auto. It fits.

I have done a swap like this, and legacy777's site really helped. I personally took a manual from a 2.5 RS and a diff from an older legacy. I however was converting from an automatic FWD to a manual AWD. If you have any questions, I would love to help.
