A couple of other items to consider for this swap:

- The slip yoke is a fairly common piece, it's a 27-spline yoke that also fits TH350s, M20 and M21 Muncies, and later Powerglides. However, these use a 1310 u-joint.
- The driveshaft will have to be shortened, so a 1310 tube yoke can be added to mate with the slip yoke.
- The '88-up Camaro T5s were world class units rated at 300 lb-ft. The world class units were lubricated by ATF instead of gear oil.
- Look for mechanical speedo units. These use the same speedo "bullet" as TH350s as well.
- Here's a nice link with lots of T5 info: http://www.thirdgen.org/forums/transmissions-drivetrain/444098-t5-faq-everything-we.html
- LOTS of floor mods required!

Here's a few floor mod images from my '62. Less can be done than this, but I added a safety loop as well (which was definitely overkill!)

As far as I know Tim and Woody are the only ones here doing it. Not sure if anyone else has.
