I want to yank my turbo 350 and put in a Muncie. my question is, I have a 383 stroker with a 1 piece rear main seal and scat crank shaft. would the earlier Muncie with the 10 spline input shaft work? or would I need to go with the later Muncie or super T10 with the 26 spline input shaft. I want as easy of swap as possible with no machining on crankshafts input shafts etc. id like to stick with the 27 spline yoke if I can but will switch to 32 if necessary. I plan on using a stock bellhousing and clutch linkage. but I want a high performance clutch, as I plan on getting twin turbos in the future, and might be throwing 800+ hp at it. any clutch suggestions? any help would be greatly appreciated

We swapped from an auto to a muncie with no special considerations in our 78 Firebird.

the thing is that the 1 piece rear main seal small block started production in the late 80's and uses a different flywheel then the 2 piece rear seal block which the 4 speeds were built for...
