You will have to move the shifter over to the left, about an inch or so. So you can get in every gear. Just fabricate a block and mount it at the bolt that connects the shifter to the tranny. You will also have to fabricate a new crossmember for the tranny. I don't think anybody makes them yet.

Not only that, but you need a custom bracket for the hydraulic clutch, you need a custom oil pan, custom engine brackets, custom headers, ect... Will cost around 7000 all said and done.
Duh, i didn't notice the year of the car. ignore me.

You can buy and aftermarket crossmember for you 82'. Thats what I used. It was bolt up and took a lot of work out of the project. As for the shifter. You cut the shifter hole in the floor pan back about another 2 inches. Thats it. The stock shifter will work fine.

Standard LT1 Camaro accessories will fit the 3rd gen chassis, but a little notching is required on the crossmember.

My question though is the 99 Camaro. Aren't those LS1 cars? If so, all bets are off and you are on your own. EVERYTHING is different. The LS1 is not a standard small block, so the motor mounts will have to be made. The trans will not bolt to a standard small block either. Its an all or nothing deal.
