From what I have been reading there are a few that will bolt directly up (although what you consider "simply bolt up" could vary from my concept). Here is a pretty decent website that does all sorts of conversions, hope it helps ;-)

but when you find a trans that bolts up relatively easy, your t case will not. so then you need to look into t cases
