A/T ECM vs. M/T ECM

I just got a 95 di. It was an auto truck but needs a tranny. I have a manual set up I want to swap into it. All the the trucks ive had before were idi, no engine comp, so I have much experience with em yet. Do I need to find a M/T ECM or can I stick with the one I got. Plus when go to do mods like chip etc do I do it for an auto or for a stick? Thanks in advance

Either a) get a M/T PCM, or b) have a custom chip, advising the programmer you have an A/T PCM in a M/T truck and they can program it to suit.
I think it will run with the A/T PCM, you will just get A/T trouble codes for the stuff that is no longer there..

Here's a link to a chart for EVERY 7.3 PCM, including application, calibration and part numbers
Just pick one in the OBS 95-97 range for federal emissions and you should be okay.
