    LT1/T56 Swap in 4x4??

    Hey everyone, I have a 1994 Blazer 4x4 w/vortec 4.3 Auto....and I have a donor 1994 camaro(entire car) with an LT1 and a t56 6speed that I have laying around, both the engine and the tranny are near perfect, so, question is, can I mate the t56 to my transfer case and have a 6 speed 4x4? I know I can do it with a 2 wheeler, but it would be cool to have a LT1/6 speed 4 wheel drive...is it even possible?? and since it is also a 10 bolt with the G80 code, and even the same 3.42 gears can I either swap the axle, or put the 3rd member in it to have the locking rear dif?? the camaro still runs and drives perfect, but I am just thinking outside the box...Thanks in advance!

    Yes it can be done. Do you remember how the Quadraduece was set up? It was AWD & had a T56 6 speed mated to Sy/Ty, Bravada AWD transfer case. I think all that needed to be done was swap out or modify the tail shaft & case. Can't just bolt up the axle because of different spring perches. Camaro had coils & the S trucks had leafs. But yes you can put the posi unit in the rear on the truck if they're both 7.5/7.625 rears.
    I know how things go together & I'm not putting my 'Tab A' in your 'Slot B', dude..
