91 camaro T5 stock transmission to a 355 SBC

I new to the forum and hotrodding in general. I recently bought a Datsun 240Z and would like to swap the old 2.4l L6 motor for a 350 SBC. Ideally i would like to make about 350 hp at the wheels.

I have an opportunity to buy a T5 out of a 91 camaro to use in my car. I was wondering if this would be a good manual 5 speed transmission to go for with a 355 sbc making about 350rwhp.

The T5 was only used with engines up to 305 cu in. They were not rated for enough torque to handle anything more than the 305. Your 355 will probably break it unless you are easy on it.

Any recommendations as to what a good 5 or 6 speed manual trans would be to use with a 355 sbc?

Tremec makes some pretty good 5 speed transmissions.
