I don't recall what Jeff Goggin found out regarding the V8 automatic block
matching up with a V8 5-speed (he had both blocks and a V-8 5-speed tranny
available to test with), but even if the match can be made, there is a
considerable problem in the automatic V-8 footwell, which is considerably
more narrow than the 5-speed footwell (fat tranny).  So there is a lot of
body work that needs doing to fit three pedals in where two are originally.
