    I had my 4L60E built to handle 1000hp at the wheels. How is the box not worth it as a paperweight? Stock they are crap, but spend $2000 and you have a box that will handle 500-600hp at the wheels no problem.

    actually the ls1 was fitted with the 4l60E up until about vy when the hsvs and tonners got the beefed up 4l65E which had the 5 pinion planetarys instead of the 4 pinion in the 4l60e as far as i unsderstand. :) Minux, has your senator sig got the m30 trans or the m32?
