Hi Group
I have been doing some investigation into changing over my TH-350
transmission to a unit that has overdrive and I've run across the 200-4R
transmission. Has anyone ever used one of these behind a small block Chevy?
>From what I've read it appears they were used in mostly 6 cylinder
applications but I've also seen where they were used behind the Turbo V-6
that was used in the Buick Grand National and I don't think my stock 350
would task it if it can handle the GN.
It looks like the overall dimensions between the TH-350 and the 200-4R are
within 1/8" of an inch of each other and the mount needs to moved about 6"
back to deal with the 200.
If anyone has used one I would be interested in knowing how they handled the
TV cable, did you use the kit made by Bowtie Overdrives? Did it hook up easy
and work as advertised?
I'd appreciate any and all opinions, advice, and anecdotes concerning this
