PCM Swap in an early 99 manual...

I have an E99 (4/98) with an AWA3 pcm...is it worth the swap (Dac3) on a manual shift truck??? Heard alot about the PMT1 & 2, but those are for auto shift trucks...any input would be welcomed...

early 99, six speed, 4x4, reg cab, straight piped, 6637 air cleaner

XC3F-AF is what your looking for, not the AG which will be the choice usually found right underneath it.

I'm gettin ready to replace the pcm in my e99 manual (awa3). I'm gonna put a reman puter from NAPA in it.... can I just get a reman equal to the dac-3 and be ok?? Just plug and play? Gettin ready to order it asap... thanks!!

--Ryan

EDIT:: Ok guys, I just called NAPA, and they don't order them by the pcm Ford Code, they order them by the Calibration Code on the computers..... example:: AWA3 code is DPC-401.... Does anybody happen to know the calibration code for the DAC-3?? Thanks.
