    76 Stingray LS1 swap. I need a little help. (Corvette xpost)

    I recently purchased a 1976 Corvette Stingray. I am deployed at the moment and I don't have the specs of the car itself, just the general info I was able to find on the internet. While I was looking through LS1 engines on e-bay, I came to find that some of the sites attached to the engines offered a compatibility bar. All of the LS1 engines on their site were incompatible with the '76, so, my first question is: Is that because the years just don't match with the engines on the site? Or is it more along the lines of--Am I going to need to find the correct year LS1 engine so that I can accomplish this swap?

    My next line of thinking is that I am going to need a new drive-train, as the original is a three speed automatic and that's not something I want in a car, that I am going to drop a beauty like the LS1 in. I read a few articles and not one of the mentioned, by name, a good manual transmission other than the T56. (I read in the forum that the T56 might be a good choice if I am going to be using the 98-02 LS1) So if you have any direction for that, I would greatly appreciate it.

    That's it for now. All help is appreciated. Please don't just call me a noob and tell me to go read a book. (unless you actually have the name of a really good one)

    Thanks
    Charlie
