Yes pretty much what scrappy said. The manual Cummins are de-tuned because the G56 is not capable of handling the torque. That being said, it's very easy to get it tuned back up.... Any aftermarket tuner will bring it right back up to where an automatic would be tuned (at least that's what I've read). So a manual truck actually gains more out of a tuner than an automatic does. If you do that, just be prepared to have your tranny rebuilt and to be putting a better clutch in it.

Take a look at H&S Performance. They make great tuners for Cummins.... the one issue you might run in to is the fact that you live in Cali.... Not sure what the rules are there regarding the H&S Street Tuner.
