Default Duramax bolt pattern

Will a Duramax bolt up to a TH400 bell housing? If not do they make adapter plates for the swap?

as quoted from diesel power

"For decades, every Chevy V-8 (with the possible exception of the Indycar engine program) has shared the same six-bolt transmission-to-engine bellhousing-pattern designed for the original 265ci small-block Chevy engine back in 1955.

The upside to this commonality has meant that all Chevy V-8 engines; small blocks, big blocks, 90-degree 4.3L V-6 engines, 6.2L and 6.5L diesels, LT-1, LS1, 8.1L, and even the 6.6L Duramax will all bolt up to the same transmissions. This has helped make Chevy engines the most popular engine to swap into other vehicles."

Before you go there, make sure your axle gearing is going to support the rpm's the motor will be running at without an overdrive.
