    I'm looking into putting a nv5600 6 speed tranny in my blazer, but can't find anybody who makes a bellhousing for it. Does anybody know who makes one? If not, i'll do the nv4500 swap.

    I'd just do a 5 speed swap. The gearing on the 6 speeds lend themselves to the Diesels alright but I'm not a fan of them in them either. 5 speed will be easier, cheaper, and I'd say better.

    Advanced adapters might have them, other than that, since the 5600 never really came stock in any GM vehicle... I doubt you will find any housings plentifully around.

    You could cross check to see if the bolt pattern for the 4500 and the 5600 are the same- if they are, you could probably just use the 4500 bell housing for the 6.2/6.5TD.
