I have been all over google and done so much research I feel more confused now than when I started. I've got an early 4th gen LT1 T56 that is going in my 77'. It will go in at the same time as a 383 stroker with 1 piece rear main in the spring. My car is currently a Muncie 4 speed. The web is chock full of info on the swap but the specifics of it get hazy. Unfortunately an LT1 version was all that was to be had around here after looking for months and from what I gather an LS1 T56 would be a much easier swap. For $600 though I figured it was still a good buy. My question is what do I need to make this work? Sadly the search on the forum here doesn't work too well for this since "T56" is too small of a tag word and I'm sure this question has been answered. Can I keep it mechanical clutch with the LT1 T56 or is that not an option? If that isn't an option what is my option for swap kits? ATS, Weir and Mcleod are not coming up with anything anymore that I can find since those came up in most of my searches on forums. The transmission came with the bellhouse, the hydraulics, the clutch and the flywheel. I know I need to shorten the driveshaft, get a yoke, and probably just go with a whole new gauge cluster anyways.
