Unfortunately, that transmission will not bolt on to that engine. That gearbox is designed to mate to the 3.5 engine which has the same bolt pattern as the 3 speed automatics, so it will fit the 4.5 and the original 5.0 M117 that went into about 1600 450SLC 5.0's. The later 4 speed automatic that went into the 3.8/5.0 cars has a different bolt pattern and as a result, the bolt pattern on the back of the engine is different.
With best regards
