Buick GSX Stage 1

Several years ago I owned a Buick GSX Stage 1 ,it had a switch pitch converter and a turbo 400 transmission and a 455 since I have seen several with the turbine transmission and a switch pitch ,does any one know if I can install one in my chevy th 400 and what is involved in the change over.

I don't think the transmission was original in my car as it had several mods.

Don't see any reason why you could not install that same set up in a chevy 400 since it is virtually the same tranny behind that 455 buick.

Yes they make conversion kits for your Chevy TH400. I have a manual switch VP in my Gran Sport.
