I need schooling on Tremecs. I was thinking of purchasing a 67 C10 that has a T5 mated to an in-line 6. I have not inspected the truck yet.
What model number Tremec should I look for, as far as putting the trans behind a 5.3?
Do all Tremecs have the same bellhousing bolt pattern?
What upgrades do I need to look into to make the transmission live behind a 400 hp 5.3?
Which input shaft is preferred for hot rodding?

Just get a T-56 From an LS engine...not the earlier LT, It'll hold 400hp. If you have the budget get the T-56 Magnum, It's much stronger trans and shifts are noticeably better.

Tr3550 TKO 500/600 are your cheaper alternatives, they don't shift as nice as the newer Magnums but should be a bolt in deal where a T5 was.
