Re: 700r4 bolt up to a ls motor????

I FAR from an expert but I think u could just find a bracket for that to bolt up on the intake for that. Or get a custom made throttle bracket for the tv cable. I dont think the cable will be a problem. BUT AGAIN IM FAR FROM A EXPERT.

Re: 700r4 bolt up to a ls motor????

depending on the year, use a 4L80E .400 spacer and flywheel, along with the correct bolts
some of the TCI flywheels have a spacer made on, but need the round spacer to take up the diff in the crank and converter snout
on some of the early LS truck engines, the back of the crank was longer, didnt need the spacer-sticks out about 1/2" past the seal
ck with Street and Performance, they may have a bracket for the TV cable

when your credit cards are maxed, have the limits raised

Here's a good link with info on the swap. IF you use a cable operated throttle body.

Re: 700r4 bolt up to a ls motor????

I have a 700r4 behind my LS1. Its a pretty simple setup with a crank spacer and a 6.0 flexplate I believe. Also, as somebody mentioned TCI makes an adapter flexplate for this. Also make sure to order the longer bolts to work with the adapter. I don't have the p/n's handy otherwise that would help alot more but I know they are floating around on LS1tech somewhere.

Edit: Here is some links to pics of the TV cable brackets I made. The stock LS1 Starter works fine.

OK...if you space the flex plate further away from the crank, what starter do you need to use?

5.3 uses drive by wire right? Meaning no throttle cable. Gotta be a way to make the cable work though.
