Gearbox is about $2000-$2500, depending on what you want done.

Unless your motor is doing things it shouldn't I wouldn't worry about a standard rebuild.

LS1s and the T56 are strong

unless there's a glaring fault, forget about it

What is wrong with the box that is in it now? 200,000 is not a lot of km if it hasn't had the crap thrashed out of it. Clutch may be getting on a bit if it already hasn't been replaced.

Get a rip shifter for it.
The standard items are SHITE. It will feel like a new gearbox afterwards.
