I haven't bolted up the trans mount yet, but it is on a jack. I have probably and inch or so. If I let it sag without the jack it will sag back until it touches the firewall.

The harness is different. I'm sure it's able to be converted to a t56 harness but it may be more work than you want to deal with. But there are aftermarket swap harnesses available for around $500.

Personally I'd go with a GM LS powerplant. But my suggestion is to look around at build logs and see which direction you lean towards. There's definite pros and cons to each.

I can tell you from what I've read the LS4 will not work. The main difference being that the bellhousing bolt pattern is different. So a t56 will NOT bolt up. If you're planning on getting...

I've been to tons of drag strips and I've never seen one no imports. lol. Our local track usually has TONS of imports. Not the slow hondas you'd think either, usually really fast stuff.
