And a large loan . Yes, BTS may still do that. I think he was looking for the parts list. Maybe the other guy is close enough? Best way would be side by side.

Best way to do it would be to run to a junk yard (or even a use car lot) and take a look at what is there. You will need the pedal assembly (or you can just cut the clutch pedal off and use the pedal assembly that's in there to save money), there is a wiring harness that connects into the tranny so you'll have to see if your wiring harness has provision for that extension. . .you may need a reflash or a new computer, flex plate, i'm not sure if the 5spd uses the same spacer plate between the engine and bellhousing as the automatic you'll have to check into that, you'll need an automatic column or convert to a floor style shifter to select gears. That will give you a start, but looking at your 5spd side by side w/an auto is the best way to determine your needs.

It says it's a stand alone control. If it does as said ---yes.
I don't like electronics only transmission control if it's pressure only control. Shift kits and valve bodys send the pressure where and when it's needed and extend life. Some chips like DP will work with Vb's and shifts kits.
