transmission swap: 4l60e to turbo 350
My 4L60e is slipping moderately bad, so Ive decided to replace it instead of having it rebuilt... again. My initial idea was to swap it out for a manual, but the amount of work and bit of custom fabrication necessary has discouraged me, so I'm just throwing in another automatic. A friend of mine is going to sell me a THM 350 for 100 dollars, everything included, I'm sure that it will bolt up same as the old tranny, however I do have a few technical considerations before I blindly buy it. Mainly, what are the ramifications from putting a non electronically controlled transmissions in a truck that is designed for one, will my torque converter function normally with the new transmission, and is there anything else that could go wrong that I'm not anticipating?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks
