I think but not real sure that the 95 tranny is a complete computer controlled unit and wont work on the 70 without the whole engine package from the truck. I would get a 700R4 or 4L60E where you could hook it up with a few wireing tricks

i don;t think the 94 would have the 4l06E. jstu check. get under it and look. i know the 700r only has two wires goign to it i think so if the trans has mroe than that i guess its the 4l06e (cvorrect me if i m wrong).... the 4l06e is just the same as teh 700r i believe except its computer controlled

here is some useful info. the 700r4 and the 4l06 are the same transmission. the 4l06e is computer controlled version of the same thing. previous posts have said that you dont want to use the 4l06e. out of all those transmissions, that is the one that i would use. there are lots of companies that make performance upgrades for these tranmissions as well as the hardware that you need for it to work. if you are looking to do a motor tranny swap, then check ebay for a motor and a tranny out of a car like a late f body or a corvette. there are lots out there that have everything that you would need. email if you want more info. i also do have some more info if you want to go with the 4l06. you can use any one of these transmissions with your car.

Actually, the 94 will have the 4L60E. They switched completely to the electronic version in 1993. I drive a '93 and before that was a '94....both 4L60E's.

A 4L60E and a 700R4 are the same trans.One is electronic the other is manual.If you run the 700 make sure you hook up the detent cable (passing gear) or the trans won't work.If you use the 4L60E b&m makes a control box for it to work.

Cool

Well,,,,,,, the 4L60/700R4 tranny has an electrical plug on the drivers side. A square connector with 4 holes.

In early 1993 there was non electronic 4L60 trannys. They had the above mentioned square plug OR round 5 pin plug on the drivers side.

The 4L60E electronic tranny was introduced in 1993 and it has a round plug about 1.25 inches in diameter on the passenger side on the tranny.

At the bottom of my web page:


http://www.geocities.com/crosley_az/700id.htm

There is a picture of a 4L60E tranny if you wish to look. The pictured tranny is the 3 piece case design, where the bell housing unbolts too. The case connector on the 2 piece case 4L60E is in the same location.
