Update for tonight... I confirmed that the GXP trans cover is incompatible with the Camaro transmission. The internals are apparently different (and larger) in the Camaro. So, this is back up for sale. Sorry for all of the run around. To make up for this, I am dropping the price by $100. $2200 plus shipping and it is yours. I need the money so I can order the correct transmission so I don't have to worry about any custom parts in the car. Everything should just bolt up and play nice together.

still curious about why the cover needs to be swapped. i would think a driveshaft would be cheaper than trying to find another trans.

Well I can't swap the cover anymore, so it doesn't matter

Right now I have three options:
1) Do what you suggest and put the Camaro bellhousing back on and bolt it up to the car. Then I would have to have a custom driveshaft made and probably some linkages to the shifter. I would likely also have to modify the transmission support to fit the longer trans.
2) Sell the Camaro trans and buy the correct GXP trans. The benefit here is everything will fit like it was supposed to.
3) Screw the manual and just fix the auto again. This is by FAR the cheapest option but will pi$$ me off because I have wasted the summer trying to put a manual in this car.
