So once I get my other car on the road I am going to start working on my Caprice. Being that it's a 1982 Wagon, my intent is to put a regular 350ci in it.

question is, Will the T56 from an LT1 and all bolt up to a regular 350 block?

I know it's a stupid question, but before I buy an LT1 I want to make sure everything is straight lol. And what electronics are in the T56 that i'll need?

I do believe it will as long as it is a one piece rear main, I am sure that wier makes an adapter any for that application. But it should bolt up with out a problem as long as it is one piece rear main seal as I mentioned above, if I am not mistaken the two piece rear mains have a different flywheel or something, I am going on memory here so don't quote me, but I think that is right.

Read here it may answer all of your questions

going by the pictures it looks like he might have put a different bellhousing on the transmission. But I'm not 100% on it. The bellhousings look similar.
