T56 swap into a 2nd gen
I've found a good deal on a T56 package from a guy. Includes:
clutch master cyilinder with resevoir, braided line, etc
6 spd trans
6 sp pedals
6 sp crossmember
stock clutch setup
torque arm mount
It's from an 02 Z28 with around 60k on it. Everything looks good with it and shifts good.
Has anyone on here done this swap that I can pick your brain with? I have an LT1/t56 bellhousing already so I can mount it up to my Gen I SBC. All the parts listed above are from the 02 so I don't know if the pedals, crossmember, etc., can be reused. I would assume the pedals wouldn't unless I did some sort of fabrication to get them to hang in the spots they're supposed to on a second gen. The crossmember I have no clue but again I would assume I would have to do some modification to get it to phase the transmission/driveshaft correctly.
If anyone's done this swap I would like to hear from you!
