    I not sure if it's a 500 or 502? Question really is what kind of tranny would it bolt to if I wanted to put it in my K5. Anyone with any ideas?

    Any BOP tranny. For 4x4, you will either need a divorced transfer case or to convert a transmission. Using a 4x4 output shaft from a TH400 into the BOP TH400 should work fine.

    adapters...

    You also can buy an adapter to bolt the caddy motor to a chevy bolt pattern tranny for about 70 bucks from jegs or summit racing...but I'd say a TH400 is the tranny to use..I dont think a 700R4 will live long behind a Caddy motor,especially if its a stock high mileage one..a TH350 might be ok if you dont do a lot of holeshots,but who has a 500 cid motor and does not do burnouts? :whistle: :grin:

    Thanks for the info guys. I would really like to do something stupid with the engine like put it in an import for one night of street racing, but that would be to much work. Better off just driving over the civic. Was thinking about mounting the Caddy motor in the K5. There's roughly 100 000 miles on it. Runs good when removed last year. Trying to see if it is worth doing.
