Does anyone know, or have an educated idea, on whether mating a subie ej engine, or ideally an eg33, to a chevy th400 has been done. If not done, possible?

With enough time and money anything is possible...............

I'm not entirely sure a TH400 is a "wise" choice. In some dyno testing here, a few years back, a "normal" TH400 requires 45HP to turn it. Probably a better choice might be a Powerglide (15HP).

Good info... I tried getting a hold of them through the other bbs, and no response. Others had asked for the name of the shop for the adapter publicly, and they never acknowledged it either. I wonder if they want to be the only one using a th400?

Thanks again.
