289 swap in new edge
Alright so I am in a little predicament here and some insight if anyone has done this before would help greatly. So I have a built 289 block assembled and I wanted to swap it into a 99-04. My plan is to go straight carb with the holly 650 I have. I know the kmember would need to be exchanged as well, possibly from a 94/95? The main problem I ran into is the transmission. Only the v6 come with the t5 that would be able to bolt up to the 289. Iím working with a gt so it has a t45. I want the car to be able to handle all over 400hp but the t5ís are fairly weak from my past experiences. So what I was thinking, unless anyone has some input, is that if I order an adapter plate, I could use a BW super t10 but Iím not too sure how hard it would be to get the input shaft etc to bolt up. Itís a big project and any feedback from yíall would be greatly appreciated as I donít have any experience with engines other than EFI setups.

also, just to clarify another concern, emissions is not a concern with this build.
