I'm with the majority here and encourage you to keep the current trans and save up for a conversion at a later date. If your current trans isn't in good condition, a rebuild of the TH350 is reasonable enough. I don't advise a 700-R4 as they require much conversion to fit your car and the cable adjustment is CRITICAL or you can burn up a new trans before you get to the end of the block. A 200-R4 is a bolt in swap to an overdrive auto and isn't as fussy as a 700.
Once the new engine is in and the tach gets to 5500 rpm.....shift...
Good luck on your project...
