Chevy to Cadillac

i have a 4L60e that I would like to put behind an old Caddy motor, 60' vintage.
It's an Old picK-up so space is not an issue. Thanks

Tranny swap

Sorry, senior moment.

1. Will they bolt up?
2. How do you get the OD to work?
3 Any other issues?

If ANYONE makes an adapter for the trans to fit the block, it would be "TransDapt". They have dozens of adapters in their "inventory".

One of the modern electronic trans people should be able to hook you up with a "stand alone" computer that will operate the thing like it was in a modern pickup. B&M made a kit to use a "lock up" converter in a '69 Firebird with a TH200-4R. Nice setup. I'm sure the newer stuff is even more popular.

As far as tranny controllers, several are sold: The Compushift ECM (Electronic Control Module) for the GM 4L60E/4L80E costs about $1150.00.

A less expensive controller is the Optishift, cost for it is around $600.00. In the same price range is the TCI EZ TCU.

For about half that amount, the MegaShift Transmission Controller is available. It requires assembly and some knowledge of electrical circuitry, etc.

There may well be others; these were on the Cadillac engine wiki page.

They do, it's one of the places I linked to above. BTW, I can't get your link to work... unless linking to a search engine was the plan...

First question is HOW old of a Caddy motor? By mid-1960s Cad motors used BOP bellhousings. You still need an adapter but they are available everywhere.

I took "60' vintage" to mean a 1960 engine, but I suppose it could be any of the '60s. Anyway, it's covered here.
