Default T56 Bellhousing adapter for 13B
Hey guys i'm not sure if any f you are interested but i am in the process of contacting Hinson Supercars to see if they would be willing to develop a t56 adapter plate so we can mate the t56 from the LT1 or LS1 to the rotary's.

A stock t56 tranny can handle 600+ rwhp and 600+rwtq ( I know i use to own a Procharged Z06) and can be found used for less than $500 below are the gear ratios for the t-56

1st 2.66
2nd 1.78
3rd 1.30
4th 1.00
5th 0.74
6th 0.50

This should really let the cars move specially with the 410 gears

in 6th gear cruising at 80mph the car is only at 1900 rpm

Post up if you are interestred i think this could be a good thing specially for track oriented cars.

I would be interested if you could get pics of one installed properly...getting the linkage to line up would be the hardest part, since someone has already done this for a 240sx with an SR20....the plate is the easiest part.

Hmmmm Sounds pretty good, can you also provide out current ratios? My only gripe woud lbe is that the car would get slower on the track if thegears were taller and i was harder for our motors to pull our asses along. Second I dont remeber corvette trannies being the most reliable actually american made one in general. Last corvette I drove with a mnaual that thing felt like POS. If you can prove to me that it fits well, works better and would last longer and feel better than I am in but my concern is that we would lose speed with a tall ass tranny like that.
