Default Trans Swap

i have a 96 ram with a 360 and decided to rebuild the motor. i bought it trashed for 700 bucks with a superclean body from georgia (live in rustbelt pa) because he was frustrated with coolant in oil( bad timing cover) fixed it but bearings were wiped i had a 94 donor for a stick so i decided to make it a stick shift because the 46re couldnt make up its mind towing my boat and thats all it is is a tow rig. the engine went great and the trans swap came. it was extremely easy until now. the trans mount is the same as are the drive shafts and transfer case most people think diferently. the pedals take about twenty minutes they just swlide on the same shaft replace the brake pedal. the slave and master are one unit and installs in like 20 minutes. i looped the neutral saftey switch because my 96 doesnt have the clutch switch wiring like my 94 stick and my 95 auto had. it starts and drives great but it will not idle. when driving down the road in neutral it will idle when sensing speed as soon as ur stopped it shuts off. im going to get the ecmreflashed which should cure this problem but then problem two. no clutch switch or neutral safety switch. are there any tuners to eliminate the clutch switch. this is a question but also wanted to post my trans swap and how easy it was with a donor truck but without still probably same cost from a junkyard for parts as an automatic rebuild and in the end ur done thanks for listeneg

Question or input on what i did right or wrong bring em cant learn unless ur wrong once
