V8 swap question

Has anyone that has done the V8 swap used the factory AW4 shifter on a 700r4 or a 4l60?

Re: V8 swap question

I have the stock AW4 shifter to my 4l60e. Its fine, i have no trouble using it and I havent even got around to redoing the detents in the shifter yet. I just flipped the 4l60e lever on the transmission and if I remember correctly thats all I had to do. It shifts to all gears P to 1

Re: V8 swap question

I used the factory shift cable. Hardest part is keeping it far enough away from the exhaust that it doesnt melt
