Not that I could find, they aren't as popular as the older autos.
I'm the director of VSH (Vlad's Spec Holden), because HSV were doing it ass about.

I'd imagine most guys doing 6L80 conversions are doing them onto earlier LS motors so no adaptor plates would be required.

There is a guy on the JC forum who has done a 5L60 swap behind an ecotec in a VX but he had his own custom adaptor plate made at a machine shop.

Did a bit of a search for adapter plates and came up with Chevy 60 degree V6 which is the same as Ecometric/ to 350 trans.
Just wondering if this would fit?

Similar I think. the later style has the extra bolt hole at 12 O'clock that the earlier chev pattern doesn't I believe. 350 trans is also not a full circle bellhousing?

Just thinking, Delco might know seeing as I'm sure they are running a T350 behind the 3800 V6 in the VB turbo Commy they drag race.

Just wondering about starter motor mounting?
Many more other things to consider too...

Definitely. Been that it's an older non full circle adaptor it probably makes the starter motor issue less of a problem.
