will the 5 speed trans match up to the small block v8?
I am thinking of buying a RS with a3.1L, 5 speed in it. I want to know if the trans will match up to the 350 engines?
the trans itself will work,might have to change bellhousing.
I would consider a different tranny. GM wouldn't match up the 350 with the five speed until 1993. The T56 is a Great tranny, especially if your building a street/strip, but you also can put a T10 or a M21-M22 Rock-Crusher. If you Are bent on the T5, Make sure that the tranny and Clutch can handle the Hp, and you should make sure you have the right gears in the rear...
I have a 1969 Corvette 4 speed transmission- 1000 miles on a rebuild- for sale.
the old T-5 is not even worth its weight in metal haha i had a T-5 hooked up to a 350 zz4 and it slowly fell apart...its only rated to 265 torque out of the box and has the worst feeling shift...i just put a T-56 in about a week ago and lemme tell ya the difference is night and day...not to mention mines rated to 800 torque now, so i dont have to worry about it falling apart when i add power to it
I put in the new Tremac 5 speed. Still working on the shifting, but it is a great addition. I never had any problems with my old T-5, just rebuilt it after 325K miles on it when I had the engine out for S&Gs. I then bought the 5 speed. Quicker out the hole, 1700 rpm at 70. Love it. Doubled my gas mileage and the ice cream cones don't melt before getting home.
3.1 has a different bellhousing bolt pattern. Unless the bellhousing is removable then no.
