There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

I have seen a Powerstroke Ex with a manual. It is pretty much like converting a superduty from auto to manual. I belive you will have to have custom drive shafts made.

Have you seen any threads on it.....would like to see some pics. I know the firewall is setup for the clutch cylinder. I wonder mostly about the floorboard, center console would likely have to go. Plus the ecu needs to change I would think.

Yes you would need a new PCM and you would either need a floor hump from a manual or cut a hole in yours. The best way to do this is to find a parts truck that has everything already.

I converted mine. Its not hard really at all. You obviously need to know how to r&r a trans to be able to do the job. You need a trans and transfer case you need to cut your floor, you need a pedal assembly that will bolt rite into your truck. There are studs hanging under the dash and holes in the firewall, you will need a cluth master cylinder and slave cylinder, and Jody from dp can reprogram your factory computer to work with the manual trans. And then obviously you need a good cluth set up and flywheel.

What about the floorboard ? Did you just get one from the boneyard ? Auto and manual use different transfer cases ? Also....drive shafts ? length changes ?

I just cut a hole in my floor and then made a new panel there is no need to go cut the floor out of another truck and then weld it in yours. Its just more unecesary work, just make a panel. The transfer case is different. The auto and manual trans use a different output shaft therefore the input shaft on the transfer case is different. I used my stock driveshafts.
