There are minor differences in 700r4 & 4L60's, but from what I understand, they all interchange parts. Later design parts are better. Some valve bodies & separator plates do not interchange from late to early design

700r4 name was changed to 4L60 when GM updated several areas of the trannys. Parts are basically the same.
If you want to do what you want to do, you have to do what you have to do.

I would add that the earlier 700's were TV (throttle valve) controlled, while all 4l60's are electronically contolled by the computer. The 4L60e was based on the 700r4. I believe the "e" after any trans. stands for electronic. There are other minor differences as well. I would be very interested in knowing which/how many of the "hard parts" would interchange. I would think many do.

The drums shells and planets are all the same. The pump and valve body are different.

that's all very true... the 700r4 was a great tranny and the 4l60e is probably the best auto-shift ever designed.
