If a clean low mile unit becomes available I think i will go that way. If I build a bullet proof 4L60 I could have over $800.00 in parts in it.
Thanks for the input.
budget in some extra cash for the conversion to a 4L80E unit....
drive shaft mods , fresh slip yoke, crossmember mods, wire harness conversion , ECM re-programing....
i may have forgotten something
