    K. I have a question?
    I have a 87 K5 blazer with a 350/700R4/203/205.
    I'm just finalizing a deal on a new motor and I'm wondering if I'm going to be able to keep my tranny and t-case combo.
    The motor I'm getting is a 454 out of a 87 2wd 1 ton,
    My tranny was built up about 2 yrs ago and I had it checked again this year when I had the output shaft chaged for my t-case swap and the guy at the second shop says its in exellent shape even better than ones hes put through his shop:D. I don't drive this on the street, I have lots of gearing so I don't think I'll hert the tranny to much ( I hope). I guess what I'm asking is, will my 700 bolt up to a 454?

    Thanks for your time.
    Regards
    Ryan

    yes, weather or not it will last is another story. as long as the tranny is upgraded with quality parts in the needed areas, it should live behind a stock or very mild 454.

    thanks for the reply.
    Not worried about the tranny failing, just wanted to make sure it would bolt up before i went through with this deal.

    will post up some picks when the swap begins.

    Sounds cool, make sure the kickdown is adjusted right, took me a couple 700's to figure it out :doah:

    thanks for the heads up on the kick down.
    I'm going to be swapping out my valve body to get rid of the kick down. (going to a reverse manual valve body).
    Cheers
