Question type: Car Customization

My 2006 kia sorento LX has only 90k miles on it. It's 3.5L v6 and automatic
transmission. But, I really want to change the transmission from automatic to
manual. I want to know what things I need to consider and spend/invest on.
Thanks you.

Find a manual transmission donor car, that way you will have everything you need. It will take a lot of work or expense to do the conversion and frankly your 11 yea old Kia is not worth it.
