    I don't know anything about the Stealth Sniper, but I'm not a fan of in-body ECU setups regardless of who manufactures them. I prefer the external ECU. So yes I would get the PF4. If you are lucky you'll get new stock with the newer throttle body which has provisions for the 700R4 geometry. The older throttle body does not, and you'll need an geometry correction bracket (Edelbrock #8026) for the throttle linkage. You need a different style bracket for the TV cable and throttle cable brackets. Edelbrock #8041 can be made to work. I had to make my own brackets for the cables, since the little brackets that came in the #8041 kit didn't line up with anything on my setup. Anyway, typical old car make it fit stuff. Good luck with it all.

    hi mate,


    i am reading through your post on pro flo 4. i am deciding this week, if i go steath sniper or pro flo 4. right now it is just a 355, but will be a 383 soon. i also run a 700r4. all in a 72 chevelle.


    out of the 2, guessing you would pick the PF4?


    any linkage issues with the 700r4? need brackets or anything crazy to get it set up.


    just chasing your thoughts on it since it seems you have had it on the car for a while.

    No problemo

    Avoid Boss Hog torque converters.
    Don't shim between your torque converter and flex plate on a 2 piece rear main seal SBC regardless of what you may have read on the interweb. You will grind off the amount of material those shims take up off your rear thrust. I know that for a fact.
    The TCI lockup kit is OK, but the vacuum switch is goofy. Do some research. There are better adjustable vacuum switches out there that you can use with the TCI kit.
    The TCI governor weight kit might come in handy to move hard throttle shift points up. The 700R4 shifts early typically.
    Take off the tall shaft housing and check how long the splined section is on the shaft. If it is only about 4 inches of splines you need a short Corvette yoke. Otherwise, you can use a standard size yoke. 7 inches is typical I believe.
    I would attach flexible transmission cooler lines to the trans before shoving it in.

    You'll figure the rest out

    Not trying to copycat you, but I see we have similar '65's. I am looking at swapping in a 700r4 (But not FI, I'll stick with a carb for now)
    Any tips , tricks, hurdles that I might want to be aware of with swapping in this trans? Thanks!
