    Your best bet is to get the correct transmission. Using the 700 would cause other problems as the engine and transmission are a package and work together.

    isn't the 4l60e just a renamed 700r4 ?......lots of the same parts and all ,so will it work?

    It's exactly the same trans except it's controlled by the PCM along with the engine. The PCM controls the engine economyAND performance with the help of the transmission. Installing a 700 would be like the doctor cutting off one of your legs. You could still hop from point A to point B couldn't you? <G>
