1980 camaro z28 with a TH350.. swap tranny??

Car is 1980 camaro z28 with a TH350 stock (engine is 383 stroker). I want to swap out this tranny for an automatic overdrive transmission since the rear end gears are 3.52:1 and it is horrible on the highway. Question is what 4 speed O/D tranny is the easiest to swap out the TH350 for?? What modification/custimization is needed to do this?? The TH350 is in excellent shape with only 55,000 miles on it but I really do need that O/D gear for the highway. Also, what ratio is the O/D gear on the tranny (whichever tranny you suggest). If it isn't that much of a hastle and almost a direct bolt-in then I sha'll attempt it.

Thanks for any help here
Keith
