These are 4L60E trannys, good stuff but doesn't hold up behind the LT series engines, I suspect the burning tire starts has a lot to do with it as these things run just fine in pickups.

I'd go with a performance rebuilt here's one of many places that furnish them with gooder parts for the heavy footed of us. http://www.4l60-e.com/

Your 95 is all electronic under the hood, under the floor, and behind the dash. changing the transmission to a non-electronic can get sticky and expensive dealing with all the interfaces. The 4L60E is just an electronically managed version of the 700R4 and 4L60, there's nothing structural in them you don't already have, it's just the E is shifted by computer logic instead of mechanical/hydraulic logic. A beefed 4L60E will have the same structural performance as it's earlier cousins.

Somebody will talk to you about a 200R4 for your car, just walk away, it's nonsense in a heavy car expected to run everyday.

Would a 4L80E be a do-able swap in the Caprice given there isn't the same room under them as under a truck where the 80 would normally be found?

Then you have the PCM to deal with, and wire harness, is there a different number of wires leading to a completely different connector between the two transmissions?

I suggest a proper rebuild of the 4l60e in the vehicle
