    The 200R4 & Turbo 400 Have exact Blueprint Trans mount pad location distance Grumpy.
    Difference is the TH400 Tailshaft extension housing length.
    Moot Minor obsticale to overcome.
    Will bolt right in place a TH400 To Replace the much weaker 200R4.

    You do not want to mess with a 4L60E unless you have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe 4x4 like I have.

    Chevy Truck TH400 Has the Deep oil pan stock.
    Unlike passenger car. Shallow pan used.

    Looking at the Photo provided by You Grumpy the 200R4 has a wider case than a TH400.
    Will fit with room to spare a TH400.

    The Trans tunnel in the 63 Pontiac Gp is Dinky.
    Flat floor design to give huge room sitting down.
    The Slim Jim Roto Hydromatic 1961-64 used in Catalina and Grand Prix.
    Weak trans.
    Just had to bump the floor for lower Bellhousing.
    Make my own crossmember from original.
    Fit right in the TH400.

    Lower ears on the TH400 can be removed.
    I chose not too.
    To run a dust cover back then.
    Gain 2 -3 inches more room if lower ears cut off.
    I run no dust cover today.
    Not needed for Hotrodding.
