How to Convert a GM 4L60E Transmission to a 4L65E - Car Craft Magazine
There're better options for the 3-4 clutch pack than the Z-pack in Article above, depending on how much HP/TQ you're gonna throw at it. Best = Raybestos Blue Plate Specials, Better = Ray. Stage 1's or Alto Red Eagles, next High Energy's .

65E's Output Shaft is also an upgrade.

IF you move forward on the project, Do NOT purchase import 5 pinion planets. Only purchase genuine GM 5 pinion planets.

|zedrone||Thanks for the response, Crosley, I don't have the trans out yet, but I did pull the pan, I found a bunch of curved metal pieces and one needle bearing laying in the bottom. I believe the rear planetary has self-destructed.|

5 pinion planets in 4l65 & 70E trans. Servo upgrade (small change), heat treating of input shaft, one extra 3-4 friction.
Changes and up grades on the 4L60 are simple and common.
Unless you broke a shaft or the planets broke apart, a proper rebuild is all that is needed along with common upgrades folks do

What does it take to modify a 4L60E to a 4L70E ?
I have a 2006 Rainier 5.3 with a 4L60E at 70K miles it has cratered. I am looking at rebuilding it and beefing it up to 4L70E specs. It will not be hotrodded but will do some towing. I'm new to this forum, but heard there
are some knowlegeable transmission people here.
