    GMPT stands for General Motors Powertrain and 4l60e is the type of tranny. If they only changed the internals and re-used the stock case I don't believe the part numbers on it are going to help.

    The 4l60e is the electric version of the old 700r4.. Nothing to write home about...

    The 4L60E is an electronic version of the 700-R4. It breaks down as follows:

    4 - Four forward speeds
    L - Longitudinal mount
    60 - Series of transmission
    E - Electronic control


    Here's a thread on a 4L60E being built by one of our site sponsors: PerformaBuilt Level II - Pro Race (Build Pics)
