Default manual trans

with all the mods available from vendors for the 3800 I am surprised there isnt a kit for a manual transmission. Now that you can get a custom PCM for cheap you could have INTENSE delete all the tranny codes for you. Whats the hold up?

A lot more is involved.
You'd need a new pedal assembly, and all the cutting of metal to get it to fit. And also there would be a need to run the clutch cable.
I'm sure there are a million other little details that need working out.

it would be so much fun to have a manual with these engines...we would probably burn through clutches like crazy.

I think that a manual bonne would be so much fun. I would enjoy that a lot more than an auto. Actually an aftermarket transmission where you can tap a paddle to shift would be a lot of fun, especially for some of bonnes that never had that as an option.

you could probably wire it correctly if you knew what to look for (INTENSE take a hint ) A wiring kit for TapShift would be sweet!
