The stock 5L Caprice comes with a 700r4 transmission so no upgrade would be needed.


**funny, cuz mine doesnt. 4L60 and i think its pretty WEAK! Does anyone who knows what they're talking about know about this problem? i need a strong-BAD-ASS Auto-tranny that wont let me down- for $$CHEAP$$ inexpensive, im not rich! that's why I drive a 92 Caprice Station Wagon!!! "What parts/components/Transmission do i need to UPgrade my tranny?" Thanks Ken D.

The 4L60 is the newer name for the 700R4. It's the same transmission. The 700R4/4L60/4L60E are all weak transmissions, especially the 4th gear clutchpack. If you upgrade transmissions, you should purchase a large transmission cooler. This will lengthen the life of the tranny.

1989 Camaro but it has a v6 and you want to put a v8 in it what kind of modifications do you need to do and can you use a trucks 5.7 and tranny?

You can put a 350 in with a TH700 without much modification because the body was built for that motor. You do have to upgrade the cooling system because the stock radiator cannot handle a V8. I wouldn't use a driveline from a truck, especially the transmission, because it was built for optimal torque and not speed. If you cannot scavenge a 350 from another Camaro, I would take one out an 91-92 Cadillac RWD or 80's Caprice (get one from a cop car and you will be untouchable). Defiantly get the transmission from another Camaro V8, because of the gear ratios needed. And you may also need to upgrade the final drive, so scavenge that from the car you take the transmission from.

What transmissions are interchangeable with a 1997 gmc 4l60e?

If you just want a drop in swap, any 4L60E - that is it. You can upgrade to a 4L80E or 6L80E, but the latter will require new driveshafts, and they'll both require repinning the ECM connections and reflashing the ECM. Same deal if you want to go to a manual transmission (NV3500 or NV4500) or non-electronic automatic transmission (4L60 or 700R4)... the ECM will need to be reflashed.

Will a 350 turbo transmission fit an 85 caprice 350 motor?

Yes, The 350 turbo is the standard trans in that model, 85 caprice's usally don't have a manual installed from the factory, nor do most hot rodders put one in, not to my knowlege. It is possible that the car could have had a turbo 400, a upgrade option, which has different tailshaft housing, which makes the tranny mount and the driveshaft differ from the 350 mounts and driveshaft length. jr
