If your looking to do the t56 conversion, get it out of a 93-97 lt1 camaro. While your there grab the hydrolics system, clutch, shifter and anything else you want. I beleive the lt1 bellhousing/tranny will bolt right into your 350, but you have to get a $350 centerforce flywheel to make it work. This allows you to use the lt1 6-speed clutch. Check out http://www.t56kit.com, he has the crossmember and couple other things inculded as a kit for the conversion. If you have anyother questions, let me know.

installed one (Richmond) in my car, expensive but well worth it. final trans ratio is .62, running 4.86 gears. unless I'm on the hiway doing 75mph @ 2200
use 5th gear around town mostly, you can pick different ratios, hope this helps
