not worth doing, it'll be a pain to get shifts right etc, stick with your auto and get it built by BTS if it's taking a dump

The 05 tranny out of the 6.0 (5r110) uses a different bellhousing than the tranny behind the 7.3 (4r100), so it won't bolt up. Like Bmac said, build the one you have, not worth the swap.
