From what I can tell the only manual that will pop right in is the SM 465.
The 700r4 needs either a new output shaft or an adapter to mate to the NP205.

If you get the new output shaft it bolts up just like your TH350 would. The other thing when you put in a 700r4 the trans is 1-7/8" longer than a TH350 so you need to either move the engine forward (my choice) or the tcase back.

I'd imagine the SM465 would bolt right in assuming you have the right crossmembers and such. The SM465 came in these as a stock option right?
