You can get a 4L60-E to stand up to your horsepower and wouldn't have to change your computer, driveshaft, transfer case, wiring, ect like you will if you change it to a 4L80 or NV4500.
im not intimidated by changing the tune, i can have my ecm working with a stick in 5 minutes, its literally a check box in my ecm labeled "standerd transmission". i can not get a 60e to hold up, i had one that was supposedly built to hold 700hp wiht 3 trans coolers and it blew up.
