Terry, I did this on a 87 300E sedan. Computer doesn't know or care (its an 87, the trans. doesn't talk to any computers). Vacuum modifications consisted of a 29 cent cap on the intake manifold where the auto trans. vacuum line was attached. Its an easy swap... intelligent grunt work, if (big IF) you have a donor car parked real close. Lots of stuff you don't think of ahead of time (both the exhaust hanger that bolts to the trans and the wood shifter surround are different with a manual trans). Minor stuff, but gets expensive if you need to get them individually. Do a search, many posts on this subject for this model car, complete parts listings also.
