I'm new to the forum,, I'm solid on wanting a single cab short bed 5.3l 2wd Chevrolet Or GMC
The problem I'm having is whether i want an automatic or a manual trans.
My plans for the truck is to be a mild-hot street, and a back up vehicle, I'd like to put down between 375hp and 400hp,
And a turbo later down the road.

Any advice would be great

Well im guessing you are getting a 1500 so it would be the 4l60e trans. Stock form isnt the ideal trans for a higher power motor. Built to 4l65e specs and built for high torque they will do ok. But I feel as though a manual trans is 1, easier to rebuild yourself and 2, would take less to hold up to some power. But either way it comes down to if you like driving a manual transmission alot or if it would be a novelty. For me, I wouldn't want a manual in a daily driver. But in a toy I wouldn't mind it.
