There was never a V8 manual available from the factory. There are a few pioneering souls on this forum who have done the conversion.

WilliamX5 is one that comes to mind who has detailed his swap over 26 pages in this thread

Manual swaps in the E53 are almost all RWD due to the lack of a manual transmission that mates up easily to both the V8 and the transfer case.

There is one person floating around who has taken the V8 manual swap to a whole new level by modifying the 6-speed transmission bell-housing to mate up to the transfer case to have AWD.
