Is longer , have to move trans mount and shorten driveshaft. Also need conversion bracket for carb to operate the TV cable.
TV cable operates the trans; is not a kickdown as on older trans. Set TV cable wrong and you torch trans

Its a lot of work. Bow Tie Overdrives has all the parts you will need to make the swap. T.V cable is super important if you dont adjust it right it you will kill the tranny first time driving it around the block. I have pulled trannys for customers because they tryed to do it them self and drove it with out checking the presser and kept driving it when they could not even feel it shift lol. No temp gauge no anything just throw it in and hope for the best and then pay me to fix it lol.
