LC Engineering's custom transmission adapter kit is designed to mate a Toyota 20R/22R/RE/RET Tacoma engine to any GM Turbo-Hydromatic (350 or 400), 700R or Powerglide transmission bell housing. Perfect for the racer that wants the easy-to-find GM transmission in their race truck and wants the power and reliability of their Toyota engine. This adapter plate includes all hardware needed for installation of the adapter plate to the block as well as the transmission bell housing to the adapter plate. This conversion will require a custom torque converter to bolt to the stock Toyota flexplate or a custom flexplate with the converter bolt pattern. It is designed to have the engine and transmission vertical, not on an angle. This transmission adapter plate is approx. 3/8" thick.
NOTE: Does not work with Manual Transmissions. Flexplate for this adapter, see Part #:
