No.

These transmissions were not common failure points so you can likely find a good one at a junkyard.

So you have a 6-6?

Not many people out there wanting to convert a 6-6 to automatic...I think they call that sacrilege.

The six speed manual is definitely not a typical failure point. Have you considered taking the old one to a transmission shop and having it rebuilt?

The 5AT and 6MT use different specifications of the J35 engine (J35Z2 and J35Z3). There have been some posts on here in the past that have addressed different aspects of this attempted swap. I鈥檇 recommend using the search function to look up some of those threads. IIRC, you鈥檙e going to run into some issues with the wiring harness and ECU - be ready to swap out some stuff beside the transmission itself. Of course, I鈥檒l defer to members on here who have attempted this swap previously.

Edit - I think the path of least resistance will be to rebuild your current transmission, or buy a remanufactured unit. It鈥檒l probably work out to be the cheapest option, in the long run. Just my $0.02.

Alternatively, you could sell it...I'm sure there are plenty here who would buy a 6-6 that needs a transmission.
