The T5 transmissions that came behind the 2.2L engines introduced in '93 or '94 are a hybrid. The good news is that they're World Class. The bad news is that they use a Ford style mounting pattern and have a unique input shaft length. I have one also and have been investigating ways to put it behind an engine with the "traditional' pattern using an OEM bellhousing. The 5 speed Astrovan T5 used the Ford pattern, but I think it had the "standard"GM input shaft length. It's a problem I'm still researching, and right now it looks like it may take an aftermarket bellhousing. I did find that Bendtsen's Transmissions makes an adapter, but at $295, it's cheaper to by the earlier NWC S10 T5 and use a traditional Chevy Saginaw/Muncie/BW bellhousing.

Inline 6 bellhousing for a T-5

Take a look at Hamilton Intakes | Unique blower and intake parts for your hot rod or kustom Also there is a really informative T-5 section in the "Tech Tips" on Inliners International devoted to all Inline powered vehicles I have 3 T-5's and all are different. Two 14 spline and one 26 spline with different input shafts and lengths. There are adapter kits made with the correct bolts also. I have all of mine coupled to Chevy sixes of varying engine sizes. I love all of them and they do take a beating too.

I have an aluminum Jeep "Iron Duke" bellhousing which is identical to the Astro van bell. I bought it for an LS-1 project since they share the same bell pattern, but cannot use it because the bell only works with a 153t flywheel and the LS only came with the 168t flywheel. It does have the Ford Mustang T-5 pattern as Bob said, but those are all WC boxes and not the weaker non-WC. PM if interested...
