Re: Major step forward... modern drivetrain time!
Hey Joe, I am right there with you (well almost)! I have a 28k mile LS1 "in the mail" along with a freshly rebuilt T56 Manual Six Speed coming my direction. Let's see; I paid $1600 for the LS1 plus $450 shipping, another $1400 for the T56 plus $300 shipping and maybe another $4k for all of the misc parts (computer, front of motor, clutch, raidator, etc) which also includes $ for help from a friend, all comes to $8k, less the $1k I am getting for the 383 Stroker currently in my 69 (needs a head job) less maybe $2k upon selling the COMPLETE M20 4 Speed for a likely net cost of $5k if I am extremely lucky. All of this along with the 4 wheel power disc brakes already on the car and I'm going to be set to cruise anywhere with 400HP at 25MPG on regular gas!
