Anyone know what trans came in the base model 84 Monte Carlos? Mine has a 305 motor in it.
should be a 200-4r
so a 4L60e wouldnt work because the car doesnt have the harness for the computer right?
It came with a 200 4speed.
4L60E will not work without making modifications/changes because dimensions are different, besides the fact that it needs a computer to operate it. You can get a computer control for just the trans, if you want to do the necessary work to upgrade it. If you are going to stick with the stock 305, I wouldn't recommend it. Just find a good 200R4 to put back in it. I wouldn't recommend a used one though. The good remans have a lot of improvements in them. One from someone like TCI would be almost bullet proof behind a stock or mild 305/350.
I have an 81 monte carlo and have put a 700R4 out of a corvet but it was built for racing. You can get a a 200r4 out of most A boidy cars from those years.
