T-350 lock-up question

so i have a th350/ turbo350 trans and i want it to have lock-up, which it originally doesnt have. i dont exactly know what all needs to be done thats why im asking. so i know i need to get a torque converter with lock-up. and i need lock-up control. such as the kit from b&m. is there anything else that needs to be done to make the switch to lock-up?

Not a trans. guy ....but there are 2 different TH350's, one is the normal TH350 non-lockup like you have and the other is the TH350C which had a lock-up converter. Installing the B&M kit in your trans....if it can be done will do nothing as you don't have a lock-up converter.....nor can you install a lock-up converter in your trans, wasn't built for one. Find a good TH350C, have one built or install a BUILT 2004R OD trans, it's just about a bolt in for the TH350...same length. Do some research also before you make the change.

im not looking to spend $2000 on a 200-4R OD trans. i cant find a th350c so thats why i was asking if it would work to convert the th350 to lock-up. if its not possible then so be it. i guess i can just use a th350 that i already have.
