I have used the TCI version of the adapter plates in both directions: Chevy engine to BOP trans, and Pontiac and Caddy engines to Chevy trans. Worked great, just follow the instructions (what a concept!), and don't forget to use the hardened washer/spacers included w/the adapter.

In one case I had a high torque Pontiac 455 connected to a Chevy pattern TH400, in another I used the same engine mated to a Chevy 4WD trans/transfer in a Blazer. That had 35" tires and was a beast.

At another point I had my '81 Camaro outfitted w/a Caddy TH400 case w/Jaguar guts behind three different SBCs (327, 350 and a 377) and one 468 BBC. Beat on all of them mercilessly and no probs.
