    You can't use the stock trany. No adapter plates. You will need to use some other trans. The rear end will hold up.

    Just use a camaro trans and have someone weld up a diff using the GM trans yoke and D50 rear joint for the stock diff. You may end up having the shifter farther back towards the seats. May need buckets.

    Any Borg/Warner T5 or T56(6 speed) from 1981 to current will work behind a 350 and you can get a shifter re locater for them. Check http://americanpowertrain.com/ for a tranny and all the parts for a swap. Other then getting the drive shaft shortened and the GM yoke installed you will need a custom tranny X-member and engine mounts.
