What's in the Box

Info

If you want to bolt a TH350, TH400, Powerglide, and 700R4 transmission up to your LS-Series engine, you need this kit. The spacer properly positions the flexplate and supports the converter hub. For Turbo 350, Turbo 400, and 700R4 transmission application.

SFI 29.1 approved. Dual bolt patterns: stock LS-Series and small GM bolt pattern.

Kit includes:

  • dual bolt pattern SFI rated flexplate
  • flexplate spacer
  • flexplate to crankshaft bolts
  • instructions

Note: Requires a 10-1/2" bolt circle converter.

Notes

  1. Fits internally balanced Chevy 4.8, 5.3, 5.7, 6.0 LS1/LS6-series V8 engines.
  2. Flexplates are .035" thicker than stock and the starter ring is welded to both sides of the flexplate for additional strength. Constructed from a high tensile strength material these flexplates resist elongation and cracking. All 168 tooth flexplates are sized for stock 3/8" mounting bolts and can be easily drilled for 7/16" diameter high performance torque converter applications and are SFI 29.1 approved.

This flexplate will work with the stock LS converter or a 10 ½” bolt circle which the smaller diameter GM series. You will need to verify the bolt circle on your converter to confirm fit. Bolt circle is measured from center of converter to the center of the mounting hole times 2.

I have a 2000 gen III LQ9 6.0 with the long snout crank, will this work or is this just for the short snout crank?

This adapter kit puts the common 350, 400, and 700R4 trans behind the later LS series engines. In the early LS there was a long snout crank that presents problems and from research it indicates that the long snout cranks currently are not adaptable to the T5 transmissions without major modifications or swap over of the crank to the short snout crank. Using this kit will also present problems when trying to use with the long snout cranks from 1999 and possibly early 2000. You may want to check with TCI direct or possibly TD Performance Products. Visit our website regularly for any updates in product availability or information.

This is an LSI to Turbo 350, 400, or 700R transmission and the kit includes a special adapter to support the converter hub. It slides into the special flex plate before the flex plate is bolted to the crankshaft with the included bolts. The adapter also centers the flex plate for perfect alignment and the flex plate is dual pattern for different converters.

You will need a TH350/TH400 torque converter with a 10 1/2" bolt pattern to work with this flexplate. Many of the TH400 torque converters have a 11 1/2" bolt pattern so be sure to measure your converter.

No this flexplate is not for use with a 6L80E transmission. This is for retrofitting an LS engine in front of a TH350, TH400, 700R4, or Powerglide transmission. Sorry we do not offer the correct replacement flexplate for your G8.
