Welcome to ECC Jay! :D

I had a TH400 in my 79 El Camino SS. You'll need to have the drive shaft modified for the TH400 yoke. The TH350 crossmember won't work with the TH400. It'll have to be modified also. You could also get a double hump TH400 G-body crossmember from Crossmembers.com. John makes a great heavy-duty crossmember. I believe ECC members can get a discount there too.
