Your profile info indicates your V6 has a "6 speed manual". Since the T56 was not available with the V6, appears you have already done a transmission transplant. If that is correct, do you have the LT1 version of the T 56, or the LS1 version? McLeod makes a universal, modular, explosion-proof bell housing that connects the LS1 version to virtually any engine.this is probably the dumbest thing you've ever heard of but here goes. So I have a Ford van sitting in my garage and I got this dumb idea of swapping out my 3.4sfi v6 for a 5.4l triton v8. So now I'm trying to figure out if I'm gonna have to swap the transmission in my firebird or it if it'll work in the new engine, if not what would I need to make it work?
Any answers on this?? I have a 99 firebird and have access to a 4.3 lt1 CHEAP with low miles.. can anyone give me some information on this? I have a 99 v6 firebird with the engine already pulled.. I also already have a k-member with suspension and brakes from a 95 lt1 along with the lt1 harness..What computer should I look for? The 4.3 lt1 pcm? I know some assories will have to be changed, will the body harness be compatible with the lt1? I also have the stock 5 speed with 3.23s in my 99.. I'm collecting parts to do this swap and would GREATLY appreciate any helpful info. And I KNOW, LS swaps can be done for about the same price but I have access to LT parts..so unless your going to buy me the LS parts I need, please keep this LT1! ThanksI noticed on the conversion charts it has 98', 99', 00', 01', and 02' swap chart for the LS1 only but not the LT1. It this because those years won't take an LT1 engine or is there some other issue? I am asking because I have a 98 V6 and I want to put a LT1 engine in because its significantly cheaper than the LS1 but I am not sure how to go about it since the diagrams and charts don't say anything about an LT1 swap for my car. Any ideas? Thanks.
