Default back to the tranny swap

i was told that to go from an auto tranny to a manual tranny i need a new PCM. i have a 2001 3.0L flexfuel and when i go look for a new PCM, does it have to be from a 3.0L flexfuel or could it be from a normal 3.0L? also...do power options and year have anything to do with PCM?

Yes I am pretty sure the PCM needs to have all the options your truck has but instead of automatic needs to be manual

U could get one for a regular 3.0 I believe but would not be able to run the flex fuel through the tank anymore
