I have a lady who came to me for a custom build of her 97 monte. Wants this one rwd. Says she can't stand the other body styles and has seen the conversion on youtube. Planting a blazer style set up under is fairly routine fabrication. The difficulty i'm running into is she wants manual but auto is easier to do. She also said her smallest engine choice is the 4.3 liter. She is hoping to have a 454 or a 427. Ok, understandable. No replacement for displacement and all. Problem is... W body wheelbase is 107.5 and the blazer 107, but there is no way the 4L60E will handle the power. What would you recommend? Short of a camaro or vette I have no clue where to get a donor trans. I'm used to trucks and muscle cars.
