Yes. In fact, much of the trans itself is interchangeable with a standard 6mt like the casing/trans itself. If you find an SMG car(which can be much cheaper than a 6mt) you may be able to convert it to a 6mt and still save yourself money compared to an standard manual car.

I lucked out. I needed a 420 6mt for my conversion on the Roadster. BMW gets $6k for a dealer rebuilt unit. I got a LOW mile trans rebuilt AT the dealer by a master tech on his own time using all OEM parts for $1200

I also scored through a friend (F+R)996 911 Brembos custom power coated to my color(silver, black Brembo script instead of PORSCHE).
