Powerglide to 350 Turbo

I want to convert my 65' Impala to a 350 Turbo trans.

Is there a kit available for the linkage or do I need to fabricate everything?

But why a Th350? Yes, better 1st gear, but final is still direct. Why not go with a 700R4 and get OD?

Because I have the 350 turbo , its not a daily driver.

The 700R4 is a TH350 in essence as it uses the same internal parts and design just adding another gear to the back of the tranny. It is a lot stronger than a TH350 but not any weaker since it has several additional decades of engineering improvements made to the tranny over time.
