Ok Man Heres What You need cause I did it. You Need Trany,pedals(standard),Shifter Cables,Sensors,Shifter,axles,ecm,you really dont need the stardard ecm but the light will come on cause its trying to send shift signals, but auto one will work, wiring harness for standard, standard mount(doggybone) its just thicker and steel and its simple from there. Also a word of advice put new clutch in now along with pressure plate and have your flywheel resurfaced. This way it saves time so you dont have to replace clutch as fast.

You'll never use your O/D light on your cluster again. Good luck, its a bit of work but the reward is worth it.
