I think you will need to use the caprice tranny as the bolt holes are different on the olds tranny.

Here is how it works if the motor is a Chevy you must use a tranny with the Chevy bolt patern. There is some trannys with both bolt pattern. (never seen one). If it is an olds motor you must use a BPO tranny. BPO is a Buick, Pontiac or Oldsmobile. I am sure that they do make adapter though (never seen one)

Can you put a 350 rocket that came out of a 1969 cutlass into a 1990 Chevrolet caprice?

A 350 Oldsmobile engine has a different bolt pattern than the Chevrolet engine. The 350 Olds and 350 Pontiac engines have the same bolt pattern. The 350 Chevrolet and the 350 Buick engines have the same bolt pattern. Unless you have a dual bolt pattern transmission (there are some out there) in that Chevy, the Olds engine won't bolt into the Chevy transmission.

Yes, but the transmission will not bolt up. You would have to use a B-O-P transmission(Buick-Olds-Pontiac). a 200R4 tranny instead of the Chevy 700R4, unless you use an adapter.
