Needing Help my T56 6speed transmission its stuck in 4th gear and won't come out .Checked around and even used ones are Expensive. So my question is would a 5speed from behind a v6 camaro fit behind my lt1
A T-5 from a 90 degree v-6 like the 3.8 would fit. But it wouldn't last very long because the GM T-5 wasn't made to handle a 350 ci engine's torque.
This is why 3rd gen f-bodies could only get the T-5 with 305 ci engines. When GM came out with the 350 tpi engine in around 1985, it only came with the 700r4 automatic.
The lt1 has even more torque & hp then a 85-92 350 tpi engine.
I suggest trying craigslist & offerup to find a whole car with the T-56 6 speed manual. You might get lucky & find that a complete car costs about the same as just the T-56.
