    To start with, you'd be in the market for a transmission that would bolt up to a 5.0.

    The 5.0/302/289(from '65)/255/351C&W/240/250/300/3.8/4.2 all share the same bellhousing bolt pattern... Also the early 4.6('91 to mid '92) and a few 400 used same pattern... Anything with a AOD trans is same, as there is only one bolt pattern for those trans(early mod motors used AOD, I had one)... The OP should have a C5, AFAIK those all have the small block pattern...

    BTW the balance on 6cyl is different than v8 so although the transmission bolts up, would need correct flexplate for swapped engine...

    Usually the 6cyl versions are built to a lighter duty standard, so a high milage unit may not be up to v8 duty(at least for long)...
