How many miles on your truck. You should go with a triple disc torq converter, and a valvebody upgrade. But since you need to remove the trans to do the torq converter. You may want to think about rebuilding the whole thing. Which can run from 1800 to 3,000. depending on what you have done.

I would recommend this, you can either rebuild now. Or take the risk save your money and rebuild down the road. The choice is yours. When you do decide to rebuild the trans. Rebuild with high performance parts. Don't do a general rebuild. A general rebuild will not last that long.

you would need the tranny, the pedals and all the plumbing and wiring, and a nice new clutch and pressure plate. im not sure if u would need to get a new flexplate/flywheel or not, but most likey. i personaly think it would be to much of a hassle and you would be better off builiding your automatic, unfortunatly my automativ let go today and im gonna get it built up.

To go to the manual 5 speed. YOu would need pedal assembly, Clutch, flywheel, new pcm for a manual. Yes the pcms are different. One for auto and one for manual transmission. By the time you did that and got it all in. After all that work and time and money spent. You could have been done in a couple days with a complete rebuild that will last for ever if done right.

Depending on what you want to do with the truck an automatic will be better for drag racing and everyday driving. Why because it can be programmed to shift at the specific right time. It has been proven over and over on a drag strip that an automatic transmission is faster then a manual trans.
