One of the bolt holes in the trans bell housing he said is close enough that you can see 1/2 of the threaded hole in the block through it and the other will require a redrill. Can anyone confirm?

ZmasterB wrote:Thats what I'm saying, no, the RB25/Z32 trans are 30A's (big), and the RB20's are 71C's (small, same trans as a KA/CA/SR). The bellhousing from a RB20/CA/KA/SR wont fit onto a RB25/Z32 trans.

I talked with the guy form the driveshaft shop and he said that he can supply me with the correct yoke to work with the driveshaft shop drive shaft I already have and fit the rb output shaft. The guy with the rb transmission is going to bring it to my shop week after next and I will let you guys know what it is goint to take to make it work.
