I don't know about the super duties but it was a pain in the butt to put it in an obs truck. If I remember right the automatic trucks where easier than the manual due to the clutch being in the way.

It was an easy install on my 02. I think it took about 45 minutes. The worst part for me was re-intalling the computer back through the firewall.

It really is easy. took me about 30 minutes. And I didnt mount mine where they "recomend" to cause I didnt want it down by the steering wheel so I drilled a whole up on the dash and mounted it there.
And definatly use that vid it is much easier to go by!

Yeah manuals are twice a hard cause of the clutch and they have a different bracket the holds the PCM in.

It was a very easy install. Mine works great! but, I'm not real impressed with the way the mounting is. Your kinda on your own for mounting. My suggestion would be to cut a hole in your fuse panel cover so when the day comes to sell your truck, all you have to do is replace that cover.
Get some velcro tape to mount it to whatever panel you decide to use.
I also suggest cutting a hole in the back of the PCM cover to run the cable through. The instructions say to do this or just loop it out through the front which didn't work very well for me. I used a 1/2 in drill bit, drilled two holes side by side to run it through.
