Start by searching something like "lock up converter switch th350c" in our search bar or Google. You'll find a ton of info and it keeps our regulars from having to feel like broken records.

As far as swapping in 700R4, the extra gear is nice, but without the right combo you can render your first gear useless. The 2004R has a way better gear spread for a performance car and also comes with overdrive.

or if you prefer it in kit form ... ($240.00 -ish)

Painless #60109 for 700R4 / #60100 for 200-4R
