Since no body has chimed in with expert advice, I'll share a little piece of knowledge I learned from doing tcase swaps. The tcase input shaft for manual and autos is different. It was a hidden cost that I didn't factor in when pricing a 3 sp auto to manual swap. Novak and them guys have an adapter but I'm not sure what it does to the total drive length. And it's probably pretty spendy. When you change drive line lengths you're talking big buck to get new ones swapped. Hope that little info helps some.
