    DAMN! that thing is huge. A custom tranny mount would definatly be needed as well as cuting and fabing a new tunnel. Inside would need complete fabrication too just so that the pan isnt draggin on the road or hit a speed bump lol

    That's what I was trying to tell ya in my first post.

    When I said it was a tank,,,,I wasn't kidding.

    The 4L80E is an easier swap if you want bullet proof with an overdrive.

    Any of you guys seen the TCI 6 speed? You can use paddle shifters or one of their outlaw shifters. It is expensive and I would have liked 6th to be closer to what you get in a t-56, but very interesting (and pricey) for sure.

    From what I read the 6l80's are not worth the trouble at this point in time. Very few builders have been able to get them to hold decent power for a good amount of passes. There is the standalone controller issue if you don't have an engine capable of running it. Also, it would be quite a pain to get them into an fbody's tunnel.

    remember tho..the 6 speed by tci needs a stand alone too ..i saw it awhile ago..i think once they get cheaper it would be a awesome mod for f body hpde or road racers that have autos but need them extra gears

    That package includes the stand alone, whereas I don't believe there is a standalone that fully supports the 6l80e. I could be wrong. I was looking heavily into a 6 speed auto vs doing a rebuilt 4l60e. That was a bit ago. I also wanted the ability to put a tc in and control shifts or have it in auto mode. Reliability and install wise the tci seems the least hassel way to go. At least that I have seen so far.

    More debate on six speeds please. Will the 6x from TcI make a good acceleration difference? Can any other speed shop build one similar to that? It also comes with a limited lif4e warranty. What the hell is the limited part?

    no, advantage of a 6 speed is purely top end / mpg related (depending on the final drive ratio which would hopefully be better than the 4 speeds.)

    more shifts = less time WOT

    it is most likely like a Playstation, if you open it, warrantee void. there are likely a variety of other things they say you cannot do, and that will be specified in the documentation they give you.

    It must weigh 150-200lbs more with all that mass,no wonder the Gen 5 is such as tank.
