I did it this past summer, wasn't too bad of a swap, but I'm going back to auto this winter. This will help: 4L60E to T56 conversion instructions for 1994-1997 LT-1

Dont suppose you have a guide for going to an automatic? I found a standard car and have an automatic donor car i want to make one. The standard doesnt have a tranny and the autos body is warped.
