Use a manual computer that matches your harness wiring so all you have to do is plug it in.
Be glad that you're not going manual on an auto truck.
You want an 87-93 style bellhousing, and you're going to have to add an external slave cylinder, or fabricate cable clutch. Hydraulic is nice.
The shifter sets back pretty far, you're going to need bucket seats. Also can build a hybrid T-5 with a S10 case that puts the shifter closer to stock. It's been done before.
