    Does a T56 Bolt up to an eclipse block with an adapter plate made and will it support the torque?

    No, a t56 cannot handle the torque of a 4cyl.

    Most of the t56’s out there are only rated at 450ft/lbs.

    Oh that's right, I forgot the OP has a stated goal of 1200hp in a previous thread...

    Would you please stop posting pipe dream questions. Learn some stuff by reading and doing. You need a ton of experience to pull off anything you've suggested in any thread you've posted or a very very fat wallet. I feel it necessary to call you out. You do not have the experience or skills to do any of this or you wouldn't be asking such basic basic questions. Points for enthusiasm but that's it.

    As I said in your other thread, straight-cut dogbox T56. A stock T56 won't do it, but a T56 with full aftermarket gear kit will (this is going to be well over $10,000 with the adapter parts and will drive like shit on the street). Heavily fortified synchronized T56s may do it, but they would probably wear out quickly. A TR6060 may make things a bit easier, but no less cheaper.

    If you don't know the difference between synchro & dogbox, or straight cut gears vs helical cut gears, you have a ton of reading to do.
