Hey guys,

I’ve been doing a lot of research into the auto to manual swaps, pros and cons and so forth. However I do have a question, I own a truck that has a manufacturing date of 10/04. Is it possible to use a G56 in the truck if I wanted to? I understand the G56 was introduced during 05, but is there any blocks you guys can see I would run into besides the normal stuff if I went to use a G56 in my truck? I’d love to know, thanks.

With a manufacturing date of 10/04, you have a 2005 MY truck. Should be no issues at all.
I was hoping so, thanks for clarifying!
Either trans will work. The ECU doesn't care at all. A manual trans is invisible to the truck except for clutch interlock switch.

That said, I recommend NV5600's over G56's.

G56 OEM released on production date of 1/2005 and after. 12/2004 got NV5600's.
Thanks! What’s your reasoning behind the NV vs the G56?
