        Nice job. Good enough to be mistaken for stock.

            Were you able to use the V6 Malibu manual trans stuff to do that swap? When I was growing up, a neighbour across the street from me had one of those cars, the wife would always lug the poor thing up the driveway in 3rd gear. ;D

              well i bought the G-body bell and fork(if you havent seen one its a bit weird) but ended up going with an 83 f-body bell housing as it has the clutch fork tilted 17 degress like the g-body and its for a mechanical linkage,also the trans mount holes are tilted because the t5 in a cmaro is tilted towards the driver, when mounted up the rear trans mounts horizontal, if i would have used the g-body bell the trans mount would have been tilted downward....that was a mouthful.....



              anyway V8 bell and trans and i actually was able to use the stock crossmember after i elogated the hole

              yes the mount is not centered to the trans mount, the th200C v6 mount is a 2 peice mount with the stud off center,it was this was with the stock trans in place. odd little buger wish i had taken more pics of it....anyway if it had been a factory th350 car the mount pad on the crossmember would have been centered as would the trans mount and then you just elongate the hole like stated.
