Hi Guys,Does anyone know what else besides an adaptor plate is needed to bolt a 700r4 tranny to a 1969 Pontiac 400 motor and make it drive? Thanks, Bruce

Hi Dan, Thanks for the welcome. I like the hood scoops on your Pontiac. Where did you get them? They would look great in black also.Do you have a cold-air air filter on your car? Thanks ,Bruce

The scoops are just Lund scoops and I got them at advanced auto. I'm working on making a new hood that is fully functional. Yes, I have a cold air intake, it was one of the very first MODs I did.

If you pull a 2004r out of a Buick Gran National or Monte Carlo SS you'll get a stronger unit. The 700r4 will not hold up if you plan on drag racing. Either unit can be reworked to make them bullet proof if you have the bucks. The 700r4 will require an adapter to attach to the Pontiac block and you'll have to move your transmission back on the frame about two inches. In both cases you'll have to have your drive shaft shortened.
