Ok, the fact that you have no idea what I'm taking about says you should not try to swap the two transmissions

On pre '93 transmissions (4L60 and 700-R4) the transmission was shifted using a TV, or Throttle Valve cable, that cable is what told the transmission when to shift gears and when to down/up shift for passing, etc. '93 and up (with the introduction of the 4L60E) the transmission now used a solenoid to shift gears, which had a wire harness replace the TV cable. The old TV cable was used because the older style transmission was shifted hydraulically

You can bolt up the 700 in place of the 60E all day, but that doesn't meant it's going to work
