Thanks guys. It's just the beginning to a long, drawn out build!

gearheadmb - The bellhousing pattern for the LS engines is essentially the same as the gen I smallblocks. LS engines use all metric fasteners. There are some caveats for using older trannies on the LS engines, for example in my case I will need a spacer at the back of the crank to support the nose of my torque converter. I bought a TCI flexplate and spacer that have the correct patterns and spacing to mate my LY6 to the TH400. Most LS engines require the spacer, some do not.

Sometimes you win. Sometimes you learn.
