Ok so here's the deal, I have been wanting to do the auto to manual swap since I bought this car but haven't gotten around to pulling the trigger. A '97 LT1 T56 showed up on craigslist the other day and upon further research it sounds like this should bolt directly up to my '98 one piece rear main seal small block. Transmission, Flywheel, Clutch, Slave cylinder, pressure plate... all of it. I also don't know if its a big deal that my engine is externally balanced. So going from a balanced flexplate to a used flywheel worries me. So what I'm looking for from ya'll is, a little bit of reassurance that this is true. Not to mention all of the odds and ends I should know about the swap. Because I know nothing about manual transmissions. Anything helps.
