    Yes, my K5 has one and I used it as a DD for well over a year. Used the stock column shifter. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I have one in the Diesel /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif in a TH400 and I really like it. I have an Art Carr manual valve body conversion kit. It one that retains the engine braking feature. No complaints. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have a TCI reverse full manual valve body in my camaro's Th400... I love it. Way better than the B&M stage 2 and stage 3 i played around with before that...
    Running a B&M ratchet shifter.. not exactly sure which one it is....

    I have no problem with it. It never really gets old, even when I was driving it every day. A lot of people don't like the stock shifter, but I prefer it over a gate or ratchet shifter. It's no worse than reaching down to shift a manual, except the shifter is right on the steering wheel by your hands the whole time.
