T5 Transmissions that mate with the D and D Bellhousing
Posted by: IU8762

Hello... newbie here again.

Last year I bought the D and D bellhousing, because I intended to mate a T5 to my Olds 215. Unfortunately, I am not sure which T5 transmissions will mate to that bellhousing. I DO know that one from a 1996 Camaro won't (now) :)

Does anyone have a list of T5 transmissions that mate with this bellhousing?

I have no list right now but do know that GM changed to Ford style T5 around 93. I asume the holes in the D&D BH are too far apart? Ford T5 uses narrower spacing.

D&D (and others) sell an adapter plate to mate the Ford pattern T5 to their 215 bellhousing.

if the pattern is clearly a rectangle it is GM; Ford is almost square as to the hole configuration.

If it is like the one on the home page of their website, that is the GM pattern. Any GM T-5 until they switched over to the Ford pattern.

V8 and V6 Camaro. Early S10.

I'm running a mid 80's Camaro with an S10 tail shaft to move the shifter forward.
