Thought I'd share a 4L60E build with you guys.
This will be going in my 2001 Camaro to experiment with some parts & calibration & will likely be sold in a few years just like the 4L80E that's in it now. The Torque Arm relocation required for the 80E uses a Poly bushing & transmites to much noise & vibration into the chassis of the car.....So I'm looking forward to getting rid of that. The 80E itself has been awesome & has taken a severe beating without missing a lick......It will get freshened with new frictions & a Billet Input Shaft then off to it's new home.
The core I'm starting with is actually a 4L65E from a 2004 AWD Cadillac Escalade that I've had for @ 10 years, Got it for next to nothing on a trade. Has about 60,000 miles & is in really good shape. I like to cherry pick cores for part/calibration testbeds as to not fight any preexisting conditions in the unit & to save some time/money as this comes directly out of my pocket......I'll probably have $3,500 in parts alone including a billet cover converter.
