Okay, I couldn't find anything on this so for the sake of sounding ignorant I'll post this one...
I'm Thinking about putting an LS-1 in my 71 Chevelle(or cast iron Equiv)
I've notice all the installs use either the 4-L60E or a 5 or 6 speed that came with there donor motor, but what about mating one to a built Th-200-4R. I have a fresh one in my car now and would like to continue using it when I do the LS swap. Any input would be great. Don't get me wrong, I like the Idea of rowing gears on a Mountain road, but I got the car already set up with a great trans.

Well i dont have a 200 but i have a 700r4 behind my ls1 in my 73 vette and am so far happy with it.They bolt right up to the lsx motors except for one bolt on passenger side upper which the lsx motors dont use.

They will bolt right together.

I believe bowtieoverdrives has the tv cables and brackets for that setup too.

That's great to hear. I was pretty sure of it, but thought I'd ask since the LSX motors computer controls the shift on the automatic. I have a few freinds looking out for one and if I just need the engine thats all the cheaper.
