    I think the input shaft is different too.

    As far as I know you take the bellhousing off (good luck with that, really really REALLY hard) and then remove the oil pump and that removes the input shaft. But I'm no expert.

    Have a gander here, first page: basement 4l60e buildup (photos) - LS1TECH

    4L60-E simply means:
    4 - 4 forward speeds
    L - Longitudinally mounted (front to back)
    60 - Torque handling capability
    E - Electronically controlled

    So, all mechanical components will be capable of handling the torque, but whether they fit the different engine is another thing. Electronic valve body etc might operate differently too, along with ratios etc.
    This transmission has been manufactured since about 1987, so you can imagine has gone through a lot of changes since.

    That is interesting, I thought it was only an aftermarket upgrade.

    I was under the impression it was a aftermarket because I had to get one installed in my VY SS gearbox.
