Check out Brad C.'s page...
<a href="http://www.fatdaddybmw.com/tranny/">Brad C.'s e28 Auto-to-Manual Tranny Swap</a> page documents his conversion, and has other useful conversion links.
This really isn't an off-topic question- you'd have a lot more luck posting on the <a href="http://bimmer.roadfly.org/bmw/forums/e28/">regular e28 message board</a>.

Yea, I did it.
1985 535i converted to 5 speed.
My very best suggestion: DON'T DO IT!!
Your best approach is to get a FREE 5 speed car to canabalize, otherwise, just sell your auto and buy a 5 speed car. The parts, let alone the labor, tweeks, and minor troubles just are NOT WORTH it. Even if you are a very competent mechanic, IMO it's still too much work for effectivly nothing for trade-in value.
5 speed 535i cars are-a-plenty. Just buy one. It's engineered by BMW, manufactured properly, much less effort, time and money.
JUST DON'T DO IT
