    nearly everyone in here has the same auto trans. 4L60/4L60E are basically the same trans, but 4L60 is hydraulic, and 4L60E is electronic.
    5 means '95, HD means V6 floor shift, D means 4L60E

    i dont know what you want out of the 'box, but a 4L60E with a hardware and software shift kit (like say the transgo HD2 kit) is good enough for most applications and will have very firm shifts when more than 50% throttle is applied (the amount of throttle determines the "tightness" of the shift, the benifits of an electronic trans).
    for higher power engines a 4L65E (a stronger version of the 4L60E) is a good choice as it can handle more power. a shift kit (even if its only a software one) would still be needed for quick firm shifts though.
