2004 LT1 swap/build

I have done a FB and a FC lt1 swap.
Now it's time to do an RX8. Most do the ls swap but I like the lt1 for several reasons. Mainly because I'm used to it and know it front to back.
just got a 92 vette lt1 with 6 speed...but need to know if the shifter will align up correctly.
is not the t56 but the tremec

Yah, it would be when you can destroke a LS3 with an LR4 crank. A proper build will rev to 8k without breaking a sweat.

it's actually about what you like...and respecting that choice. Which is apparent that philosophy does not exist here...have fun...peace out...I'll do my research and build someplace else.

Putting your idea on the Internet and not expecting good and bad feedback is like walking into a lion's den and not expecting to get eaten.

The lt's have not been produced since the 2000's. So... yea, they are old motors.
