the t350 isnt as strong as the 400 but as far as DD goes i would think they would be close to the same and if your looking for overdrive i think its the 700r4 that is the overdrive tranny i could jsut be talking out of my ass though

no overdrive on either the t350 or the t400. The t400 is a very heavy duty tranny from GM it was mostly behind big blocks and in 1 ton trucks, big beefy tranny pretty much bullet proof and can be built for reasonable money, lots and lots of aftermarket support. The t350 is a good tranny came in just about anything from the mid to late 80s and earlier super cheap to build and you can find them ANYWHERE and just as much or more aftermarket support for it as the t400

t350 cheap 3 speed good to 450hp can be built but better for lighter stuff
t400 still reasonable much heavier can be built reliably to 700 hp


the 4l60e is a t 350 with a lock up converter eclectically controlled
the 4l80e is a t 400 witha lock up converter same as above

now search for the rest you lazy ass :)

And to decipher the models 4L60E and 4L80E....

4 = Forward number of gears, L Longitudany mounted 60/80 Torque range higher is better you'll find the 60 behind a small block and the 80 behind a big block for the most part, E Eletronically controlled as in current gen stuff. for my DD car, it's got a 4T60E...same rules apply, except the T is for Transversely mounted, as in a front drive car.
