Default Here'* how I want my Olds Cutlass Calais

I'm curious about his engine tranny combo. I thought the two couldn't be mated. Maybe a custom adapter was used.

Only thing I'd probably change visually are the exhaust tips, and maybe get rid of the tint -I like tint, but for some reason it doesn't quite look right on there.

Marty the 96 Series II uses the 60 as the trans so mating a SII and 60 is not an issue...

cool little car tho

I'd be willing to bet a 99 engine will run fine with a 96 PCM.

I'd assume so. Just need to match the PCM to the tranny.

The problem I see with the combo is bolt pattern of the trans to engine. It'* my understanding that the Series I has a different bolt pattern on the block for bolting the tranny up than the Series II.
I'm well aware that the 1995/1996 SE/SLE/SSE and 1996 SSEi came with the 4T60E, but with different cases (note that if you look at a 4t60E on a Series I (not sure about the SII 4T60E) they do have a different bellhousing for the TC.

Also, the 1996 4T60E is vacuum controlled where the 4T60E is fully electronic, which is where PCM programming became an issue with Intense and DHP, IIRC.
