78-83 FACTORY XMEMBER MOD FOR USE WITH 700R4

MAKE YOUR 78-83 G-BODY XMEMBER WORK WITH A 700R4

I have used this mod with an approx 400HP small block.


I still have this Xmember in my garage after almost 10 years of use.

I used a piece of square tubing and made a 700 crossmember for mine.

Thats all I did to my stock V8 81 Malibu cross member, Was cut a few inches off the mounting pad and drill a new hole for a 700R4 install. The mounting pad need`s to clear the 700R4`s pan. V6 cross member`s may be a little different, So I would install it bolt it in and see where it hits the pan.
