I don't know if I missed it, but do the shift cables come through the same place for the manual as the auto?

Yes, you don't have to modify anything there.

I'm not positive. Back when the 2k's first came out I remember people trying Isuzu aftermarket clutches and had issues with the slave cylinders leaking and clutches not disengaging fully. Could have been user error (slave should be replaced with clutch because it is said that it over extends once pressure is removed from it and can cause leaking), but I can't say for sure. I remember measuring installed height of the two and they were nearly identicle. Finger travel to release could be different though.

You have to use getrag flywheel and clutch. The getrag flywheel is half the thickness of the isuzu.

And the Getrag pressure plate is twice the thickness of the Isuzu, but like I said, over all installed hight is nearly identical.

If I can get out to the garage I'll post pics of the two side by side.

Anyone ever wonder why GM went to the heavier "stepped" flywheel with the Isuzu, and back to the Flat Quad4 flywheel with the Getrag? Maybe the Isuzu needed the slower rev down to aid in getting into gear?

I ran a getrag clutch and flywheel with an Isuzu trans without an issue. Ironically, I am using that setup on my Getrag swap, LOL
