Are u swapping both Manual trans or automatics?


From my notes.....should be a good swap The 4L60E (and similar 4L65E) is a series of automatic transmissions from General Motors. Designed for longitudinal engine configurations, the series includes 4 forward gears and 1 reverse gear. It is an evolution of the Turbo-Hydramatic 700R4, originally produced in 1982. The 4L60E and 4L65E are built at Toledo Transmission in Toledo, Ohio and have also been built at Romulus Transmission in Romulus, Michigan and Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. The two transmissions are differentiated quickly by the 6 or 7 bolt bell housings. 4L60 uses a 6.5" depth bell with 6 bolts and 4L65/70 uses a 7" depth bell and 7 bolts. They also have different input shafts and torque converters. 4L60s uses a 298mm input shaft. 4L65/4L70 uses a 300mm input shaft and converter designed for LS applications only. Only corvettes and HD vehicles came equipped with 5 pins.
