Go to the TCI website. They have a pretty nice list of trans dimensions, you might find the mount info there as well. Quick look, the trans mount is on the case, not the tailshaft, and the mount is ~2" further forward on the TH350.. you can make it work if you have a welder...

FWIW, not having OD kinda blows, nothing like having a wheezing 305 spinning 3000 RPM to keep up with traffic on the highway.

mike, it would be for the wagon....383. ill have to look at the link when i get home. with a 2.56 gear i dont think cruising rpms would be all that bad either. hell the impala sits at around 2500-2800 rpm doing 80 on the freeway

Yeah, with a 2.56 it won't be too bad. As for your Impala RPM's unless you are running a non-stock tire sizze, your highway RPM at 80 in 4th and TCC locked should be 2100-2200. If it's higher than that, either you're running in 3rd, or your converter isn't locking up. Even a 245/45-17 only bumps you up about 50 rpm..

Assuming a 235/70-15 tire your 80mph rpm with the 2.56 will be about 2500-2700 depending on how loose the converter is.
