The metal frames are the same between '77 and '78...the foams for front buckets would be different however with '77 deluxe vs '78 deluxe.
'77 was the last year for the horse-collar style buckets (deluxe).

Rear foams should interchange just fine.

Interior / 1977 / 1978 Front and Rear seats - Same cores?
« Last post by sonudasouf on May 25, 2016, 10:28:58 AM »
Hey there,

Does anyone happen to know if the seat "cores" in the 1977 and 1978 Front and rear seats are the same?  For example could I take a set of 1977 front and rear seats and re-cover them with the a set of 1978 seat covers?  Does the inner padding differ?  Does Deluxe vs non-deluxe matter?  I have a good 1977 set of deluxe seats that I may want to re-cover to 1978's deluxe seats one day and I'm not sure what would be involved.  I still have my 1978 rear cloth/velour seat that I was going to sell if my 1977 vinyl rear seat is the same inside.

Thanks for any help!!!

You could also put a gear vendors overdrive on your stock tranny. It bolts on to the back of your tranny where your tail shaft is. http://www.gearvendors.com/hrgm3s.html

It's not so much the higher hp but the higher torque that bothers automatics. The 2004R would suit, also the 7004R with a few more mods. Plenty of info out there. Either would have to be beefed up to handle 500+ tq.

DriveTrain / Aftermarket automatic transmission for my 77 Y82
« Last post by kra9484 on May 24, 2016, 12:39:12 PM »
Looking for some advice please. I have a 1977 Y82 Trans Am with the Pontiac 400 & automatic tranny (does NOT have the W72). I plan on doing a frame off restore once I get everything figured out what I want & who I want to send it to (RMC, Texas Trans Am, Florida Trans Am, etc. Any advice there also). I want to build up the engine to around 400 hp which I read is pretty easy to doÖ so my question is, what is a good replacement for the stock tranny? Should I rebuild it, is there a better aftermarket replacement? I called Tremec but they donít make any automatics. I thinking I want overdrive for long trips but definitely need it beefier for the higher hp. Thanks guys. Btw I did a search in the forums from years ago & found out about a 200R4 but looking for any more new info.
