I didn't realize it was that confusing. Must've asked too many questions.
I'm just looking for some insight into building a good 4L80E.
There are many many good tips and tricks for doing the 700. Even come up with some myself.
Just wanted to know what guys have had success with in the 4L80E. Must not be too many guys building them or nobody likes me.
The vehicle is an AWD Typhoon. I've already got quite a bit of money tied up in adaptor plate, output shaft and transmission crossmember. Rear driveshaft shortened. I'll drive it up to Gilbert's driveline for a new front propshaft when it's done.
Torque converter and flexplate will be fun too.
Just trying to draw on the accumulated knowledge here.
Thanks again.

Thanks for the link but wasn't anything there. There was some discussion on which trans was better (700 vs 400 vs 350) but that was it.
What kind fo car is this engine from?
4L80E is a late model OD trans that shares some of the same components as the old TH400.
