Use an Aisen AR5 from a Chevy Colorado with the Fabbot adapter kit.  It's nearly the same thing as the R154 (might be exact same?)

These 5 speed transmissions plus adapter kit cost = < $T56

Sir, Thanks for your reply but again the gearing is to tall in the 6 speed transmissions. And for this "Application" I highly prefer a 5 speed manual.

 Thanks again,

Hay

Tit for Tat. I guess everyone has their own preferences for name calling...

Now I'm looking for a wide ratio 5 spd. to install with an alloy 5.3 LSX / LS.

How about an NV4500 if you want wide ratio? They don't get used too often since they are wide ratio transmissions intended for truck use - so you may get a bargain buying one from somebody who really wanted a T56.

Less than $1500 to do the whole AR5 setup including having a $500 driveshaft made.  Probably closer to $1200.

That requires a dead two piece case 4L60E transmission to donate its bellhousing.  Where are you going to find one of those?

That's the L92.  There are too many names.  Most don't realize that the LS3 in an automatic Camaro is called an L99, not an LS3 . . .

For at least a while (after the Corvette went LT1), the engine you got when you bought an LS3 crate from GM Performance was a Camaro engine with a flexplate on the back. You could tell by the coil packs and the included exhaust manifolds which car it was for. So, maybe technically an L99, but GM called it an LS3 so I am comfortable calling it an LS3 :)

The joke is that the junkyards are full of broken 4L60s.

Heck, you could probably get one for scrap aluminum value from a trans shop.

I was.  I now have a Tremec TKX.  At 480whp, I broke one of the AR5's.
