there are ways around it like choosing a different gearbox like a t5 for example or an earlier auto. If you want to keep the 700 auto your options are much more limited i have heard of people persuading enough clearance but i'm not sure how you go with that

wouldn't a TH400 be a better move? (If TH700 is out of the question for what ever reason)

Why? Turbo 400 is heavy and not warranted. Turbo 350 is lighter and smaller and more than capable of handling an injected 5 litre.
