Are you looking for a 4spd, 5spd or a 6spd?

Really depends on your application. Depending on your axle ratio and what you want to do with the car. A W/C T5 would be nice, but at about 350hp it gets kinda dicey if you really hammer it.

Any GM 4spd would work as long as you match the 1st gear of the trans to the axle ratio. Divide 9 by your axle ratio; the answer is approximately what 1st gear you should have in the trans. If you wanted to use 3.08s for example; 9/3 = 3, so a 2.88 1st T10 would be fine.
