I am only in the planning stages here, but I am wondering if anyone has mated a manual tranny to the 500? I plan on building the 500 up to better HP/TQ #s, so I guess it will have to be pretty hefty. Just wonder what my options are? Also, I need a BOP pattern bellhousing right? Are they different BOP patterns, like the ones between a small block and a big block?

I believe people are using a modified Pontiac bell......not sure what has to be done to it though.

Do a search either on this board or Google for caddycarlo.......he has a site that talks about a manual trans and big Cad.
