Automatic to Manual Conversion

Hi I just got my first Camaro, (its a 2015 1ls with automatic transmission) I really wanted a manual but the deal was just too good to pass up. Ideas for conversions?

trade it in for a manual and while you are at it get a v/8. You would really need a doner car in able to swap all the parts you need.

The 2015 1LS with an automatic doesn't make sense.......1LS came with a manual and the automatic was an option......would be cheaper to buy a 2LS which is a 1LS with the automatic tranny.

Conversion is not a simply tranny swap either because the rear ends are different.....as indicated in the owners manual the V6 manual and the V8s have limited slip differentials requiring fluids with limited slip additives whereas the V6 automatic does not.
