    It can be converted. The bellhousing, clutch setup, input shaft and front cover are different. Plus bearings would need to be swapped and trued.

    But IMHO, you'd be better off getting a T56 meant for the ls1. If things are not setup properly, you could cause major damage to both the transmission and engine.
