    6 Speed Conversion on Yukon

    I was wondering what it would take to do a 6 speed conversion into a 5.3L 2001 Yukon. I know the basics, but what trans will line up with the engine? If I'm not mistaken didn't someone make a limited edition Yukon or Tahoe with a manual trans? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I'm not positive, but I would think that a full setup out of an LS1 car would work... tranny, bellhousing, clutch, flywheel, etc. Trying to mate a transfer case to it is another story. I know some Sy/Ty guys have made custom adapters for theirs, but I'm not sure if there are any adapters just out there in the aftermarket. You will have to make some modifications to the trans tunnel to accomadate the shifter, and a new drive shaft will be in order, as well as a custom tranny crossmember. You'll have to fabricate the clutch pedal assemby in there too.
