In the VT, yes. See https://pcmhacking.net/memcals.html
When you get to the VT section you'll see auto and manual listed against the same pcm types.
Have you read the FAQ? For lots of information and links to significant threads see here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1396

Sorry I may have not made myself clear. It's the mechanical bolt in info. I know the VN V6 had different engines for manual and auto but I am hoping to buy a VT V8 roller cam engine and it's a manual and need to know if it will bolt up to my VR V8 auto box.

Yep, swap your flex plate and bolts and in she goes.

Thanks. That's what I was hoping to hear.
