351 Swap

I need to know what would need to be done to put a C6 on a 95 Bird that has a 351w going into it. Car is mainly going to be driven in town. Need to know what mods will need to be done.

Thanks in advance.

Your ego is writing checks your a$$ can't cash.
Installing a motor with some parts to go faster.
Oh yeah the engine is painted so that adds 15hp right there!

well, since it seems I'm the only one who has ever done the exact swap your wanting to do, here's how I did mine.
Allright, first off, the C6 fits rather nice in the tranny well.
The tranny crossmember that held the 4R70W, works perfect.
I didn't have to change anything there.
I also reused the stock shifter and cable.
The one main thing I had to change was the length of the drive shaft. The C6 is longer then the 4R70W. I had to get roughly 5 inches cut off the driveshaft. It cost me around $80 dollars to get it cut and rebalanced.(this was the 2 piece OEM shaft BTW). I also had to use a larger yoke in the rear of the tranny. The yoke from the 4R70W was too small. Since I took the motor and tranny from a donor vehicle, I had everything I needed.
I also had to run new tranny cooler lines.
Also, your factory speedo won't work(unless someone knows how to make it work by a cable driven speedo).

I think thats about it, if you have any other specific questions, lemme know.

Nick......................I'm back!!!
May you fly low and fast
rest in peace JL
