Yes, we can tell. no problem, that's why hotrodders.com is here. When I was young and starting out I was tranny stupid. That's why I had to get mine re-built 2 times. Let me clue you though, with your intrest in rodding the engine, and shifting manual, get yourself a shift improver kit such as B&M. They aren't that much (about 40 bucks) and have it installed in "street/ strip" mode.
It shouldn't cast that much to have it installed and you will love the added firm shift's. You can also use your stock shifter you have now which you can either shift manual or leave it in drive. Believe me, once you get it in there, you'll never be happy with a stock tranny again knowing the performance your loosing out on. Good luck with your car.
