Not sure about trans but the hoods won't swap.

The trans will probably bolt up, but they are so weak I wouldn't bother with it. If it is a manual it is only a 4 speed too, so you won't have OD and it will kill your gas mileage.

Not out of a 78 it isn't.
If it came off of a 302/5.0 it will bolt up.

It's a c6 that was on a small block so I think I have to get my driveshaft shortened

IF, it is a C6 then it will be strong enough, but you will lose the overdrive gear and your gas mileage will suffer considerably.


If it happens to be the C4 instead, then it is much weaker, but can be built to reliably handle a lot of power, but you will still lose the overdrive gear.

It is the c6. It's not a daily driver at all so I don't mind the mileage issue.
