Gonna have to do some fixin...

Got a 2000 7.3 4WD, auto trans,. the tranmission is about to go we think. Before we put a bunch of money in fixing/replacing the automatic transmission, we would really like to dispose of the auto tranny and replace it with a manual.... can this possibly be done? Only mods are an Edge program, guages for exhaust temps, tranny temps, and boost pressure. We pull a large horse trailer with living quarters, and cattle. Appreciate ideas.

you can do it. it's a big headache though. it would be a lot easier to just buy a vehicle that already has a manual in it.

put in a nice built auto and be done with it. How many clutches do you think you'll go through after the expensive manual swap?

I agree with building the automatic. If you like a manual, maybe can trade the truck - lot less headache.

Welcome to Powerstroke.org

I'd say the swap is doable.. but would be full of headaches. A built auto will serve you very well, or if you must have a manual, I'd look into trading trucks.

I would look at getting a Built auto. But if you Really want a manual i would also just find a truck to trade up with.
