460 to aod adapters

I have read quite a few articles on this, but cannot find a listing or a price, called summit and the boy said a WHAT???? SO.... has anyone done this,know where to find one, or at the least have a picture showing the difference between the sbf and the 460 bellhousing patterns. I have the nessary tooling to do it but, I'm a little intimidated and would like to have a pattern, I searched google yahoo lyncos and every other web site search I can think of.
I think I might be going nuts!!!LOL

Also do you fellas think that 1/8 steel plate would be strong enough? I read they are made from 1/4 aluminum plate.
Any one have one for sale? Basically its a big block to small block adapter.

IMHO, it would be a lot simpler to use an AODE out of a 460 pickup.

Some people can break a cannon ball, in a sandbox, with their bare hands.

You mean E40D. That would be my choicce. You would need a really beefed up AOD to take a 460, even stock.

No, he means AODE. totally different tranny from E4OD (electronically shifted)

If your hot on making an adapter plate, go to the wrecking yard and get a big block and small block rear block plate. There's your pattern. No one makes them I image because there is considerable modification required to get a sbf AOD to live behind a BB. A good SB will tear one up. See Lentech Transmissions. They sell a nice one for about $2000. You may have converter and flywheel issues too.

I know what an AODE is. But it still won't mount to a 460 but an E40D will. So how would an AODE be easier? Also an AODE is also electronically shifted thus the E.

actually they do make them and I found me one it cost 465.00 from art carr. And trust me I dont want a junk aod I wanted it so I wouldnt have to change the tranny in my SC since the bell housing dont come off. I heard the sc 5 speed tranny was rated to 400 hp and 450 tq we will see!!! we will see!!! Ice says with a deep menicing laugh!!!!!!!!

Of course the normal thinking side keeps wispering 351 W But the frosty side is screaming 460 and the idiot between the ears can't here the normal side.

And yes I figure it will explode if it ever hooked up good.

And from the look of the carr plate it is a simple flat plate with holes drilled in it. NO cast risers or anything just a flat aluminum plate. SO I might do the block spacer thing and try to lay it out and see how close they are. Also does any one got a broke sc tranny case? with a good or decent bellhousing? dont care if its cracked or case is broke, I just want something a little lighter to work with. I have a t5 bell i can use but I wanted to mount the throughout and input shaft to work out the bugs, before I eve think of putting in the car.
Man decisions decisions decisions.
I know I'd be better off with a 351 but I would also like a sleeper. When you have two good plans how do you fellas chose between them?
Headers exaust isnt a problem, SO now we just got a 351 light or a 460 heavy. I really wanted to do the twin turbo 351, and have everything to do it,except some small crap. But I also love the unmistakable sound of a bigblock. This is just week end cruise duty not dragstrip. And not work duty.
SO I ask of you guys WHICH IS BETTER the 460 or the 351?
Sorry so long but im really undecided. Just cant choose. I got the means both ways And cutting down a 460 flywheel isnt a big deal. the adapter plate and headers is the only time consuming part I see.
But all the 351 stuff is off the shelf from the headers to motor mounts, oil pan. I think Im trying to talk myself into the 351. So undecided, and this thing is taking up a bay. what to do

Feed the frosty side! I'm looking for a very early E40D trans that uses a TV cable, they're few & far between but they can handle the torque! Try Bauman.
