    Anyone running the 8L90 out of a Camaro in their second gen? I have been looking around for transmission crossmembers that will support the 8L90 and it seems like BRP Hot Rods (Muscle Rods) is the only one that sells a transmission crossmember with a bracket to run the 8L90. Hooker/Holley sells one for the 4L60 that i have seen used with a 6L90 - not sure if that could be used here with minor modifications or not. The motor/trans show up Monday so haven't had a chance to measure anything out. Any info is helpful, cheers.

    Still too new of a swap, you might need to invent the wheel and see what works

    brp hot rods is your best choice, I plan on using them for my project, but I won't be putting a 8l90 in my car. (and by the time I get around to it anyways, there might be more options available to me)

    This guy on the other hand is putting that transmission in the car and I would suggest looking at his build thread to get a better idea of what you'll be dealing with (aside from needing to cool down the super charger)
