Turbo 400 swap.with agp twins

Okay so we are going to attempt a Turbo 400 swap with the AGP twins set up. We talked to Kevin today about clearance issues . He thought maybe one other guy was going to try the swap but didn't think it would fit . I got builder to send me some transmission pics of the turbo 400 and the 48 LE next to each other.. The 400 looks to be skinnier with the exception of the Trans brake solenoid. Does anyone know how much skinnier the stock auto is compared to the turbo 400.does anyone have any input that can help this ?kevin is going to work closely on this to hopefully make a viable kit for this swap 20150205_135343.jpeg,20150205_135223.jpeg 20150205_142147.jpeg20150205_142320.jpeg

So all parts are in for the swap(except drive shaft ,but it's cleared customs and on its way)we are pulling car into shop tomorrow and making this happen.thanks to Greg from fti for the trans and converter. They both look like quality pieces. I really like the way they put on the updated bell housing so we don't have to try e and fit a scatter shield in these cars 1.5 0 to 60s here I com

So. Termec is out and both manifolds are mocked up and and sized to fit. If trans had no trans brake we would have only had to change the drivers side. The passenger side just would not fit with the brake solenoid sticking out the side Looks like it's going to work though. Picts to follow

So trannys in and looking Awesome. Can't believe it fit I've tried to post pictures but for some reason they just won't upload. I can't wait to try it out. Just have to mount cooler and she's ready to rock and roll. Bottom line it can be done

Went for it's maiden run today around the block. A couple loose connections nothing to bad for leaks. My concern is a engine vibration that wasn't there previously (in neutral I still feel it ). Not driveline. Anyone have any ideas. All went together so nice

So I found out the Trans shop didnt send the adapter for the ls flex plate to go into the turbo 400 torque. We machined one up , had to pull the Trans back out and reinstall. Not happy ,but vibration is gone . Was much happier on this test run

If anybody does one of these type of projects , please make sure u have a neutral / park safety switch hooked up and working . I was going to get to it and almost wrecked my car today starting it and being in gear. Luckily I managed to get my feet in and stop it before it ran off the hoist . I stopped all other work and got the safety lockout working

There is a relay in the fuse box that runs the starter/crank ,pulled relay and remotely mounted it still in fuse box then just run wires back into origonal relay holes with the exception of the turn on wire that I ran through my neutral switch on shifter and then back to relay holes. Hope that made sense. I will take a picture tomorrow and post it .
