    WANTED: LT1 6-speed setup

    WANTED: LT1 6-speed setup (transmission, clutch, pedal, master cylinder, etc...everything I need to swap over from an auto) I want to throw this into the 87 when I have it built up.

    There is no timeline on this.. so I have time to shop around, gather info, etc.

    Thanks.

    I did the same swap in my 89. you need the pedal setup from a third gen, fourth gen was diffrent - i cant remember why, but I had to get 3rd gen pedals. Also is your engine 2 piece or 1 piece rear main seal? Fiadanza makes a speacial fly wheel for the 2 piece its about 350$. Also mine had bad vibration, I had to get it balanced. Thought Id tell you to have it checked before install, pulling the tranny sucks !!!!!!! other than that its its a great swap. I instaled 4:10 gears with a 265- 35- 20 and it runs great on highway. oh yea you need to buy or make a rear crossmember.
    thought it might help, RALEIGH

    Thanks for the info!I won't know about the engine till I pull it.. its supposed to be a 383 stroker out of a truck.. thats all I know at this point. So until I pull it and run the numbers, I won't know. So was everything else you used from a 4th gen except for the pedal? (mater cylinder, clutch, etc)? Did you take pics of viddeo of the swap? How much did you do yourself?

    everything else was 4th gen. i did all of the swap myself including making the crossmember. make sure that you get the braket on the tranny for the torque arm it took three weeks to find one!!!!
    i dont have pics of the swap. can put in the air and take some of it finished. it might help?
