    Sadly now demodded :(

    1st question is: Why? TH350 has a 2.52 1st gear vs 4L60 having a 3.06. TH350 = no OD gear.

    While it can be done unless this is a dedicated race car the swap just doesn't make sense.
    67 Camaro: K-K + 797-z (look it up), 454/Th400/4.10 12-bolt = 6mpg, PS/PDB/PW tilt, tach, gauges...

    2005 Corvette LS2/M6 Magnetic Red Metallic (What else would it be?) w/ Cashmere interior

    2002 Z28: NBM/Tan, MTI smooth lid, smooth bellows, !AIR, !cats, 1-3/4" QTP SS LT's, 2-1/2" TD's with X-pipe, MagnaFlows dumped at axle, custom welded SFC's, MidWest Chassis body mount adjustable T/A, 3400 stall, 3.23 gears (was 2.73). Tuned: 343rwhp/357rwt (before TD's). Best: 12.559 @ 108+, 1.73 60' @ 3500' DA w/MT ET Street DR's.

    Trany will bolt right up, drive shaft will have to be made or altered, (iirc) the TH350 is shorter than the 4L60e..
    So there may be more needed than just an altered DS.
    It's been ~30 years since a Camaro with the TH350 was built,
    so you'll likely have to do something different with the trany cross member, and torque arm..
    You can always change rear gears to overcome the 2.52 takeoff we're only talking roughly a little over half a turn or 0.54 difference..
