worth it?

Alright I found a 6 speed tranny. 800 for the tranny but it needs a new clutch.
oh and I wanna do the swap.
And he has a FULL donor truck.
What should I offer him? I plan on doing the swap myself with a few buddies and my cousin, who worked in a diesel performance shop. And well getting some pointers on here.

My main question is, I wanna jump on this before it is gone. How much should I offer him for the parts I need and the tranny? 1000? I just don't wanna low ball a guy. and wanna be fair about it.
Been needing something done as my truck is not moving..

you need the tranny, pcm, maybe idm, probably the wiring harness ( but theres a great swap writeup somewhere, where the member mentioned tapping into the auto wires for the N safety switch), gauge, shifter, driveshaft, get a "new" master/slave assy, clutch master cylinder, pedal assy itself...sure im missing a few items.

That "member" i mentioned, he also has done a few swaps and didnt need the "tranny hump" floor area, but just "massaged" out what was in the truck...

I saw the write up and have it on my favorites lol he said the only thing the truck is missing is the turbo and some interior parts. nothing big has been taken yet. and he is willing to let me get what I need.
I just don't wanna get deep into something and be like, yeah this sucks haha

You dont need the IDM...

You dont need the PCM if you plan on running a chip...

Again, I have to ask why? Save your money and get a properly built auto... Your truck will be worth more, it will drive better, tow better and outlast the junkyard manual.

Pretty sure you dont even need the PCM without a chip, IF you can get a VIN from a manual truck and have the PCM reflashed for $60 at a dealer willing to do it, or a shop that has the ability to do so.

But, by the time you spend the money, with a quality south bend clutch, your better off like Joe said with the auto. To each his own though.

Well if my truck still drove, I would just save my money. But my truck is currently being a nice driveway queen right now..If I could just leave it sit while I save the money I would.
I just don't want to try to get this built tranny goin, and end up screwing myself since I am pushing big tires around.

With that statement there, really puts things in perspective. Not too many looking for a manual when shopping for a truck that they can afford...
