swap that keeps tranny in exact same position ?

I'm slowly considering swapping a carbureted LS motor in my 68 Camaro. I currently have a stock 327 mated to a 621 bellhousing and Richmond 5 speed transmission.

I worked very hard to build/modify a mounting plate for the Hurst shifter, as well as making custom shifter rods and offset stick, all that to keep from hacking/enlarging the shifter hole in the floor.

My question is, is there a swap kit (motor mounts) that will keep the transmission in the exact same position as it was with a small block ? Which headers will allow me to use the factory clutch linkage ?

Can't speak for the headers....but the 1.5" set backs kept me straight

these may work better ?

Re: swap that keeps tranny in exact same position ?

I'm in the process of installing my LS with a T56 Magnum in my 67 and I'm very close to stock position I just need to get the front down a little lower which I think I can do with a change on my motor mounts. The DD sliders work awesome and made it very easy to get the motor into the perfect stop. As for headers I have the Kooks ones they are supposed to work great with PS and the DD and the MAST oil pan I have. I have not installed them yet but I'm not to worried.

I'm not aware of any LS headers that will work with the z-bar manual linkage.

Everyone has gone to hydraulic for that reason.
