LS and LT type T56s

I have two T56s. First one is set up for LT1 and its brand new and upgraded. Second one is set up for LS1 and needs a rebuild. I need to swap the two formats so that the "good" one is set up for LS1 and in the process I'll rebuild the "bad" one and put it behind an LT1. I have the Tremec manual on PDF but its a bit generic and I've never done this before.

Is it just the front plate and input shaft I need to swap?

You might want to check your cluster gear as well. Different applications had different gear ratios. And remember the bell is different. You can use an LT1 bell on an LS but you'll have a hole where the clutch release fork goes.

Here is a supplement for our parts catalog. These are the Tremec (TTC) part numbers, and its broken down by group. Any parts that are LT or LS specific will be noted

Thanks, these are both 2.66/0.50 gearsets. The LT1 setup is actually a TNET1247 converted for LT1 use. The LS1 is a stocker that came from an 02 Camaro.

Thanks for the link... very helpful!
