THM 400

I would love to know what kind of torque these handle
Those used an older naming scheme and dont refer to the torque rating.

700R4 is the 4L60 wich is the hydraulic version of the 4L60E. E is for electronic. There were updates almost yearly but there really is nothing that seperates the two. At work they all get refered to as 4L60'*

The 200 is a light duty 4 speed used in RWD G bodies. It can be thought of as a smaller 60 but is pretty much 100% different.

350 and 400 are hydraulic 3 speed tranies used from the 60'* through the 70'*.

Typicaly the 400 is stronger and the 350 is lighter and more fuel efficient.

4T40/ 4T40E is used in cavaliers.

THM stands for turbo hydramatic. Hydramatic is the division of GM responsible for transmission'* and drive trains.

GM also re badges other tranies as thier own.
The 4L30E is used in isuzu rodeos honda passports and the cadilac catara.

I dont work with FWD units but I know they rebadged toyota units used in the corola/nova/prism.

Chevy even has a part # for a version of the engine in my mazda wich was developed with suzuki wich was bought by gm.
