Thanks for your reply. I see what you mean about the shafts being different. The links you gave me do show much better prices on the 300M shafts. They're still a little pricy though. I see though that GM released the heat treated shafts for the 4L65. They didn't release anything like that for the 700R4. Therefore, I may have no option but to use the 300M shaft if I want to install a hardened shaft. The turbine shaft that's in the trans now has obviously held up to the motor. What I'm thinking though is that I don't want to put the OE shaft in the Smart Tech drum, just to have to replace it later when I build a stronger motor. To use the 4L65E shaft, what other parts would need to be changed?
