Do a little more reading before you come home...use the Search button up there on the right. A few people have done the swap, but I have yet to hear of a "kit" for the swap.

imho your better off just finding a manuel car and purchasing that.
If you haven't purchased the car yet, that would be a better idea if you're set on a manual. An auto GT would have the sportronic feature though, so you could still shift it manually, and then she could just put it in "D". The key is, take your time and decide what you really want out of a car before you buy. Is the car primarily going to be for her to just drive around in, or for you to have fun with?

not sure about a kit but from what a former friend told me you could basically swap out the engine and trans. Not sure if this is true.
