Automatic Transmission - what year 200 r do you want to use for swap
I'm thinking about changeing from a m6 to a 200r so my GF can Race it.I was wondering if there was a certian year you have to use.Also didnt some come with lockup converters if so what years. And how much stronger is a 200r than a 4l60e .MY car was orgnaly a auto car but i swaped to a m6 and now my Gf wants to race so i need to go back to an auto

I would try and find one off a GN or a Monte Carlo
from about '87. The Monte will definitely have
the universal pattern bellhousing (305 SBC), the
GN might have BOP pattern? But the GN / GNX /
Turbo Regals will have the best guts I believe
since they had the highest-rated-output motors.
The 200R4 uses a TV cable for kickdown, no
computer, you will have to cobble up something
from the throttle pulley to pull the cable. I
reckon there is stuff ready-made from places that
sell built trannies for swaps.

well, if you go w/ a full manual valve body, you wont have to worry about the tv cable. side from that, it can fry the tranny if you dont have it adjusted properly.
the 200-4r is a great choice for a street/strip od unit. you can run them into the 9's when built right, and still drive home w/ overdrive ;D

You need to look for one that has BRF on the nameplate on the tranny. They mostly came in 86/87 GN's, Regals, Monte Carlo's, and Caprice's.

TSP will run you around $5k for the tranny. They go to one of the best 200R4 guys in the country. But I don't they'd have a problem helping you out with components.

Call Art Carr or The 200-4r Performance Center for serious information. These guys can build them better than GM did, while blindfolded and only using one hand... :D There are other companies, but these are two of the best I've heard of.
