You want the 1987 to 1992 version, these have all the fixes and thete were many.
You also need the throttle linkage and brackets as the 700R4 uses cable operated mechanical modulation with kick down as one integrated system where the TH350 uses vacuum modulation and mechanical kick down as two seperate systems. Installation instructions are on the web, they need to be explicitly followed or you smoke its guts faster than you can read this.
You'll have to deal with rear mount and driveshaft when you get there, usually minor mods to the mount and driveshaft shortening are in order.
Given that most wrecking yard 700R4's and 4L60's (not the same as 4L60E) have their best years behind them, just buying a rebuilt is in the long run less expensive. To that vain you want something more erformance oriented to insure you're getting a late production model with beefed up parts added.
