I've got a stage 2 performabuilt 4l60e in a 98 Camaro with 3:73 gears. How much does the rpm drop between gears when at WOT? If the tranny is shifting at 6300 when it goes from 1st to second and from 2nd to 3rd how much do the RPMs drop? 1st to seconds not to bad but 2nd to 3rd seems to drop quite a bit. Let figure that the stall convertor is a 3200 and its unlocked at WOT. What are the actual gear ratios of my performabuilt 4l60e?

Hi the actual gear ratios of all 4L60E transmissions are the same
1=3.06 to 1
2nd =1.63 to 1
3rd=1 to 1
4th=0.70 to 1

My tranny drops 2400 rpms on 1-2 shift and 2050 rpms on the 2-3. The 1-2 shift will drop more rpms just because the ratio spread is greater than 2-3.

example in my drag car: stalls around 5800 rpm 1-2 shift at 6500 rpm drops to 6000rpm 2-3 shift is at 7200 and the rpm drops to 6200rpm. Its weird but its all in the converter
