Your car had the TH-700R4 as the automatic tranny option, look in my Transmission Information sticky post and find the specifications picture with the included measurements, one transmission or another will almost directly fit, but this information will help you out with knowing where you will have to make changes and or adjustments.

I believe you will find a torque arm from the rear diff that runs up to the tranny cross memeber& mounts there. You may want to re-mount that torque arm

if i got this right

It is my understanding that the tranny in a 3rd gen camaro is in on a tilt. This would require a cable mounted shifter. Not sure on crossmember fit. For track use, go to the powerglide with a tranny brake.
