SSedan64 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 need to buy planetarys for this unit, then you could purchase 5 pinion planets like the 4L65 - 70 E have.

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

What parts failed on your trans? 4L70 trans specs are not massive difference in basic parts of the 4L60 series trans.

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
