EDIT! - all items are sold.

 

 

My ls swap has turned the corner and I am ready to part with my backup engine and trans.

 

details:

350 cid Chevy. Rebuilt motor from autozone. Purchased in 2009 but Never installed or started. Accessories included, water pump, alternator, and cleaned up tpi set up from an 89 GTA. 

Trans is a trade I took on a motorcycle sale to justjim75 less than a year ago. According to Jim it was fully rebuilt recently and has a corvette servo and a b&m shift kit installed. There is not a torque converter included.

i also have some of the engine harness from the 89 gta and the buyer is welcome to it all. It was pulled in 08 and the ecu was given away on this board as I thought I was going to squirt it anyway. I will also throw in a set of shorty 3rd gen headers as I won’t need them anymore either.

id like to get $1000 for the pair. I’m not really looking for trades as part of my reason to sell is the desire for some space. But I am always willing to listen to an offer!

Perfect for my truck, but timing is not. Just shoveled a bunch of money into the fleet, and about to buy a house. 

Do you know who built the engine? Jasper built stuff is pretty good, I think.

Other than purchased at advanced auto parts on memorial drive I am not sure.

I can look around but I’m not super optimistic. It may still have the hanger tag o the engine. I haven’t been able to roll it out and unwrap it to look as there is too much other stuff in the way still but I will try to do it tonight. Hopefully the book of faces buyer for my old door leaf will show today. ......

Advance around that time was in bed with ATK... Soon after that, they parted ways.

Would you consider boxing and shipping the trans to Vermont?

I would. Though I have never tried to package or ship a trans before so any recommendations on packaging and shipper would be appreciated. Would $500 be out of bounds price wise? That’s what I was figuring for value when I took the trade.

If there was a factory way to put 4l60e and tpi together.....

I was under the impression the 700r4 and 4l60e were essentially the same but the 4l60e had more electrical inputs. Was that incorrect?

In reply to itsarebuild :

Not totally. But all the shifting is controlled by the ecm. That doesn't do tpi natively. So, you have to get an aftermarket trans controller, then the factory ecm for tpi, then.....

92 was last year of 4l60 non electronic so 93 tbi would be 4l60e.

Basically if the transmission has a removable bellhousing, its an E. The only thing you have to worry about is maintaining line pressure in an E. The rest can be "light switched" for the rest.

My 92 Safari 700r4 was originally behind a v6 tbi. Now it backs up a SBC with an Edelbrock carb. No electronics for me.

That plus shipping seems reasonable. Greyhound? Fastenal? Strapped to small palette?

Certainly willing to try either. There is a bus station in downtown. Not sure how that works but I can call tomorrow if you want to go that way. Where is the nearest greyhound to you so I can ask the right questions. fastenal works too but I don’t know where that would be relative to me.

Send me a text or give me a call to discuss details. Four oh four 694 nine nine 21.
