    Your going to have your shift forks upgraded and your synchronizers upgraded. If not you will tear the transmission out.

    the 10 bolt is weak and will blow itself away with just a set of slicks

    Your T56 was rated at 350-ft-lb if it is the 3.36 low gear ratio unit and 400 ft-lb if it is the 2.97 low gear unit. It will need the iron 3/4 fork and a synchronizer upgrade to be more"modern" If you don't bet the xxx out of it, you will be ok trans -wise.
