    why do you want an automatic?
    but if i were you i would look into a built 4L60E or a 4L80E. they are both OD trannys and will give you good milage on the highway. and still get you out of the hole with 3.73's.

    im looking for more consistant times (e.t.) besides the drive shaft and flywheel, and cross member, and the shifter, what else do I have to do? I heard that you dont have to do anything with the computer, if I just put a th350. but if I go with a newer 4l80e I will have to get a new comp or have mine programmed for the auto. thanks

    you might have to do somthing cause the computer is going to notice the absense of the tranny.
