I'm wondering if anyone has switched a 2002 H.O Auto (47RE) to a heavy standard (NV5600). My friend is having trouble with his Auto. and is considering switching to a Standard (6spd) if it's not to bad of a conversion. I'm really curious if the transfer case is the same and can be used or not? Thanks for any help!

Well there is a lot to change...

Steering column
PCM Brain Box
Transmission and belhousing
Clutch / flywheel / Mater & Slave cylinder
Pedal assembly

I've never done it before but I read of a few that have... The biggest problem is getting the PCM changed out with the proper software other than that the CEL light will drive you nuts and there will be no power...

Parts list goes something like this... trans (very $$$ and hard to find) clutch, Pplate, hydrolic master and slave, cross member, drive shafts (or mod yours) more.
You will be better off finding a donor truck that has everything in it and scavenging from that so you get one stop shopping.
Once you get it together... fill it to the plug with D/C approved fluid. Then pull the shifter and add one more quart of fluid threw the hole. New Venture put the plug too low in the case and the output bearing runs dry and implodes (I know that the hard way). You may want to consider a cooler and filter kit and drop in a guage while you're at it. With the extra volume of the cooler/filter and the extra qt to get to the proper level I dont see over 150* towing (Yet, the Miata weighs nothing). Good luck... Chris
