Convert to Manual? 

So I am going to pull the 305 out an put in a 383 stroker with 430hp 450tq maybe in the next few months. I currently have a 200 r4 in it. The car was always a automatic and was powerglide back in 52. With all that I am thinking about coverting to manual. I had a Muncie m20 in my 51 Chevy (same car really) with a 350 and was fun. But that car was a always manual. So trying to find the right pedal and linkage hydraulic setup etc. moving the tranny mount and maybe having to touch the driveshaft depending on measurements etc. I dunno if I should stick with automated and get a more high performance 200 r4 with a stall converter.

Any opinions???
