If you want to keep shifting that old T5 won't likely last too long. Get an NV3500 from behind a late 4.3 S10 and get the hydraulic clutch components from a mid to late 80's newer truck. The full size truck NV3500 has too low of a first gear to be useful in a light truck.
If you don't really care, use the 4l60e that came on the Vortec 350. They're easier to find and install.
