You will have to set the motor farther back. There are pics in this thread that show you how to I believe. The oil pan will hit the steering linkages. Trans clearence will be fine unless you raise the motor vs move it back
to get a sbc where i want it, and to make room for engine mounted gas pedal, and shifter linkage,, i remove quite a bit of fire wall....and ill slit the tunnel all the way back to the tail of the tranny, and peel it open.
if you look hard at this pic you can see what i mean. actually i guess pretty much the whole tranny is exposed.
most gm car boxes are the same just need the right pitman arm I have run s-10 manual boxes on about every car that I have run if you want to run a manual box on the caddy you can use one from a sixties impala

heres one I jigged for my caddy this year...you can only see half but it looks the same and the half pictured. I used a plum bob some jack stands and a angle finder to get it all setup. It may not be the best rear end ever fabricated but it works just fine for me.
