It's possible but very expensive ! You'll need a a cluch pedal assembly, clutch linkage, bell housing, flywheel, disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing & clutch fork, shifter & shift linkage, trans cross member, manual trans, drive shaft & U- joints, & all misc, hardware! For exact cost ask a trans shop for the auto to manual conversion. Better to have a '81 wrecked manual trans Camaro salvage yard doner car standing by first for parts.
