When doing an AOD to T-5 swap you will need this part. It comes with the clips so you dont have to use the ataching clips from your old one. Dont for get to get the lower shifter boot too or you will have hot air coming into the cab from under the car. The console is the same for AUTO or MANUAL. This just pops into the same spot. Junkyards will charge you 15 dollars for this part. Might as well buy it new.
