    I ordered a 80 gmc sprint bellhousing and i got this in...It is for a 1980 AMC Spirit...2.5 4speed ,This is basically a small block chevy bellhousing that will accept a ford tranny...Now what is very cool is that you can use any 93-02 camaro/firebird 6 cylinder T5 will simply bolt right up, The fork is in the same location as the g-bellhousing 606 is..And if you wanted to you could put a ford T5 in a g-body...a small block chevy in your jeep...A small block chevy in a T5 mustang....man it is an orignal AMC part...after all thats what made them anyway...A little of this a little of that..This is just another option than finding an orignal g-bell There is some old Iron duke AMC stuff still out there...

    This was found by a junkyard man's mistake on inventory of a GMC SPRINT....(ELCAMINO) BUT A AMC SPIRIT

    all 93-95 3.4 camaro/firebirds have warner T5's with ford bolt pattern, and the 96-2002 f-bodies have warner T5's as well just a different speedo for the newer 3800 cars. I did the research and found all this out...Hey another option...to 5 speed a g-body..

    I did find 2 more that are local to me...in the older yards...There are several more out there..But this lets you ran a 93-2002 f -body V6 5 speed...unlike the factory bell.
