    Question LS1 t56 vs LT1t56

    Hey everybody. I recently came across a great deal on a ls1 t56 tranny with 48k miles on it. I can get it for less than 600 bucks. I want to put a t56 in my 79 malibu with an early (73model) block. I know the lt styles are more straight forward with older 2 piece seal motors. But what would I need to do the ls t56 swap. I already have a hydraulic clutch set-up with the t5 in it now. And I just scored a g-force t56 crossmember for the g-body cars. I had to buy it after I was the high bidder on ebay. I didn't think I'd win but I did for $75. They're 250 new. Anyway, all help is appreciated.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    You'll need an LT1 bell housing at the least as the LS1 has a different pattern.

    Other than this IDK but I'm sure that there are others that do.

    I'm also gonna guess this gets put in the tranny section for more exposure.

    Don't worry as that would be a good thing.

    All I know is about the different bell housings as well. Good luck though!

    The bell housing and input shaft are different.
