My buddy has an 01 sonoma and wants to know if there is a kit to bolt up a 700r4 to his 2.2L. His truck is auto. I dont know much about swapping tranmissions. Thanks in advance

He shouldn't need a kit to bolt it up. The 4L60E (auto trans these trucks came with) is an electronically controlled version of the 700R4.

However he's going to have issues with the computer in his truck no longer recieving info from the trans. May be able to swap in a PCM/ECM out of a manual truck? I don't know.

Why does he want a 700R4 instead of a 4L60E, is he just trying to install a trans that he already has? It would be way easier to install another 4L60E, imho.

Yeah, he's not going to gain anything by switching them. Gear ratios are the same.
