    Thinking about 4l60e to 4l80e swap...opinions?

    So down the road when my 4l60e needs to be rebuilt I was thinking of swapping a 4l80e in. Has anyone done this? How difficult would this be and what sort of adapting would need to be done to get it to fit. I am trying to do all the research and ask the questions so I know what needs to be done before hand.

    There is a few write ups over on tech.

    How much power are you planning on?

    I saw a few threads on tech but most of them didn't get too specific or detailed. For now 500ish is all I will be putting to the wheels but down the road I will be building a lsx tall deck 511 ci which would probably be close to 850-900ish hp from the research I have done.
