A shift kit is for an auto tranny it shifts at different RPMs and faster shifts basicly. If u want a manual u will have to put a standard trans in no other way

I know I have seen R/Ts with full manual valve bodies and floor mounted shifters, so that it is like a manual.

'97 RC V6, 5spd, soon to be V8, 5spd!
Maybe not a 5-speed, but an automatic will work.

B&M makes a floor shifter for trucks. Couple that with a TransGo or B&M kit and you'll have full manual/full auto control over that automatic, as well as firmer, quicker shifts.

I had a B&M floor mounted "ratchet" shifter in a V8 S-10 and really like it, think it was a Mega Shifter. Drop it into drive, slam it back 3 times and your in 1st gear, slam it forward to hit 2nd, slam it forward again to hit 3rd, slam it forward again and your in 4thOD,,, or you can just leave it in drive and let the tranny shift by itself. Best of all, no one could figure out how to shift the truck into drive ;-)

I would definitely install a shift kit. I've installed TransGo shift kits in a few trannys and noticed a big improvement over stock. The shift kit is installed in the transmission, best done while changing the fluid. It consists of changing some springs, seals, different balls, drilling some holes. You have to drop the valve body and it's messy, but well worth the work.
