I would actually like to swap it for a 4 speed (3 + overdrive). Anyone got any thoughts or recomendations for this one too.
Thanks in advance

Sorry to here of the no-go! You probably would want to think it over on the 4-speed instal, verses instally and AOD of a different sort. Upgrade to a newer automatic for fuel savings. The 4-speed requires a great amount of under the dash work. Adding the clutch/brake assembly rack, all the requirements for the clutch, a bell housing fro the 4-speed and so on.
If you are going to install a stick, then I wouldn't waste the time on a 4-speed over the option on a 5 or 6 speed transmission. Since you just lost your T350, upgrade to a 4L60 and add a paddle shifter to your collom.
The price in swaping from auto to stick does not compair to upgrade on the AOD setup. Your money, your ride, your choice. Good luck.
