I don't know anything about transmission valve bodies or anything like that. so i am wondering what a manual shift kit is or what to use for a ratcheting shifter i have know clue about any of this stuff os if anyone could help that would be great.
Manual valvebody the trans will no longer shift auto in drive ,you must shift each gear yourself.
A ratchet shifter can be used with any valvebody. Depends on what you are doing, racing you can go manual on the street look to the transgo stage 2 kits.
