Searching for T5 Transmission + Questions

So, lately I have been looking for a 5-speed manual transmission out of an Iroc Z for my dad. I believe the years these were made were ~85-90. He is rebuilding a 54 Chevy Pickup Truck.

He is taking an S10 transmission, and putting the guts of an Iroc Z transmission for shifter position.

He was told that the best transmission to get would be a manual T5 transmission from an Iroc Z to handle the engine.

While searching Ebay I found there are two T5 transmission types. One is called World Class T5 and the other is Non World Class T5. What is the difference in these?

Also, did the Pontiac Firebird have the same T5 transmission as the Iroc Z's?

Or does anyone have a 5-speed manual transmission from an Iroc Z? That would solve many problems... He is looking to spend up to $500. + Shipping.

Well will those two tranmissions work in an S10 casing for shifter position?

Okay, thanks. I'll let my dad know and see what he thinks. If these are options I'm sure he will be happy to go with them. You aren't the first person to tell us that the t5 sucks.
