Now that u mention it I have no idea where the parts whent....It was on a smaller vehicle, it wont fit anyway....hmmm....Sorry

t-case will fit but you will need new d-shafts and possibly a new crossmember

by the time you are done it will probably be around a grand if you are mech inclined why not rebuild your c6 with some better parts and lower gears
you could do alot for $1000

how do you come up with 1000?

just wondering, cause im was tryin to work out how much it would be?

its hard enough to find a tranny under $1500 (5spd in good shape) i know where there are a few if your willing to pay but for what its worth rebuild the C6 there bullet prouf and it is way nicer on your drive train no real shock loads unless you put a stall into it which if its to 4x4 i wouldn t to that but that personal exp.

hey also did you get that reciept yet? i fun the orignal reciept for the purchace of the CR

if you do it right and get a new clutch $300, new or shortened/legthened driveshafts $400 for the pair, clutch pedal bracket assembly ??? it's a bitch to take out /put in, master cylinder and slave cylinder???
different crossmember, new trans mount, fluids then all the misc stuff so i'm probably under on that estimate you could do it cheaper but it would not really be worth it and you would probably have problems
