If they are the same type of trans (TH350 or TH200, for example) then it's a bolt-in. If the Camaro has a 700R4 and the ElCo has something different, then you're into a different crossmember, possibly different driveshaft, etc.

Th400 requires a shortened drive shaft and a different cross memeber. But unless its a 70 (Maby 71 too) your stuck with a TH350 which is a great transmission stock if your not pushing much more than ~350lb-ft

Most likely a TH350 in the Z (2nd Gen 70-81). Unless its a 3rd gen then the 700r4's were used. (82-93, arround '93 brain fart.)
