hi guys,
got a couple of quotes for my 4l60e to suit my 355, just wondering what you guys thought?
i tried protrans and als raceglides in sydney and both came to a price of around $3800 which includes:
all internal parts strengthened (new), custom shift kit to suit, strengthened flexplate and 3500rpm stally...
both said box will handle 500hp...

is the 3500rpm stally good to use as a daily driver?
is the pricing fair?

cheers

mate, to put a 4L60E behind a 355 would be the worst move you could possibly make. Gen3s blow up those gearboxs like fireworks on 4th of july. get a turbo 400 from status in victoria and ull be laughing. They are by far the cheapest and best ive heard of. and that will come in way way under 3k. as far as your stally goes, get the lower power figure of your came and try to match it with your stally. Would be the best way to go. 3500 with a big cam would be tough as!!

I always thought the boxes bolted up fine it was just the little things that were the problem e.g computer TCC lockup etc.

oh i thought there was some mucking around with them to fit in...
well in that case what are my options as a straight bolt in box like the t400/700 etc i would like a box to handle 450hp at the engine (street use) and if it can be bolted straight in no fuss?
i need advice plz...
is it true would my 4l60e (beefed up) be a disaster behind my 355?

To stick a turbo 400 in, you would need a different gearbox mount/support. Also need to change the front section of the tailshaft (different yoke and probably different length).

Depends on your driving style to what gearbox would suit you best. If you plan on doing a bit of drag racing/burnouts and spirited driving, then a Turbo 400 without a doubt, one of the strongest autos around.

oh ok, well the purpose is purely street driven, and im just after something to comfortably handle 400-450 horsies at the engine. i have found this article:

i was wondering is it possible for the 4l65e to drop straight in and get it beefed up instead of the 4l60e or is there mucking around involved also, seems like it would be a good swap if strengthened also, let me know what you think...
