  1. Manual transmission options

    I was able to find a T56 on Ebay. Not it's time to send lots of money to Johns cars and start putting this thing together.
  2. Manual transmission options

    Thanks everybody. I was able to find a rebuilt T56 on ebay. Now it is time to send cash to JCI for motor mounts and start putting this thing together.
  3. Hi Z-car fans. I have a 78 280Z that I am collecting parts to do a V8 conversion and restoration on. I have a chevy motor called the L33 AKA the 5.3HO. This is an aluminum block LS based engine rated at 310HP and 335 foot pounds of torque. I am planning on using the installation kit from Johns Cars. I want to run a manual transmission in my car. I talked to Johns Cars and they suggested the T56 from a Camaro. I have not had any luck finding a used one in decent condition. I have seen a few on E-bay from C5 corvettes but I don't know if they will work in my application. Does anyone know what my options are? thanks, skibumspence
  4. Hi everyone, I have a 78 280Z that I am collecting parts for to do a V8 conversion and restoration. I have a chevy V8 called the L33 AKA the 5.3HO that I intend to install into the Z. If you aren't familiar with this engine it is an aluminum block LS based 5.3 liter engine rated at 310HP and 335 foot pounds of torque. I am planning on using the Johns Cars LS based engine mounts and kit. I want to run a manual transmission. Does anyone know what my options are for a manual trans that will work with this kit? I talked to Johns Cars and they suggested the T56 from a Camaro/Firebird. That's fine but I haven't found any used ones for sale. There are some on E-bay from C5 corvettes available, but will they work for me and with the Johns Cars kit? Thanks for your help, skibumspence
