Im looking into replacing my old, worn out turbo 350 with a new 700r4. I plan to do it myself in the fall or winter when it cools down. Some people have told me that the 700r4 fit with no modifications, and others have said they needed minor mods like moving the mount foward and shortening the drive shaft. Does anyone here have a 78 or 79 with a new 700r4 and can tell me what you had to do to fit the new trans in your vette, and what make/ model you used?
