You would need a new engine because the cvt and manual wouldn't work the same.

Hmm...I'm sure you could do this without a new engine...you'd need the tranny and to probably reprogram the ecu.

Dont even think about it. Easy way trade in your car its the cheapest way or if you would like....

You need a new manual transmission, TCM Controller, New ECU, Possible electronic harness rewire, clutch pedal, cables, ect. Countless hours of labor because this is no DIY its serious work and to top it off its a 08 car with all new transmission that only mitsu has just try getting a price quote.

Possible Yes Probable absolutely not hate to bust your bubble but just trade in and lose the 5K and save money.
