After finishing the 85 cutlass I am starting on a new project. I'm putting a 2008 6.2L L92 and 6L80E in a 1971 Chevelle.

Nice. Where did you get the engine and transmission?

looks like a great start. I want to see what you have to do to the trans tunnel to make it fit.

Exactly my thoughts. I will be putting that exact same combo into a 1965 Buick Skylark. I have two thoughts on the transmission tunnel. One is to replace it with aftermarket sheet metal and cut out the old one.

Two is to cut the hump right down the middle and then cut across the top and about 36" back and pull the sides back. I have about 6 months before I get to that point. Still rounding up parts and doing research.

Looks good! I am also interested in the trans part of this.
