That sounds right. Super cheap swap. The calipers are like 75 bucks on Amazon prime

I went with a little looser converter this time and it's a 10 inch single billet

Updated the 80e to the new internal harness and all new solenoids, weighed the stock converter last night and it came in at 89 lbs while the new 10 inch single billet came in at 29. So 60lbs of rotating mass off the engine. That's huge!

Hot damn. Will this make it harsher on the diff and suspension? In other words does a heavier one provide more of a cushioning effect to the power delivery?

No it will make it easier on it. The stock converter is so tight with the transgo kit that it slams the gears so hard. The looser converter makes the shifts feel like a stock car with the hd2 kit

Sweet, I thought looser implied that but I'm still learning about autos.

any idea what the stock 4l60e convert weighs? And how are you taking the trans out? Engine still in car or take the whole damn thing out?

I'm pulling the trans out from the bottom, it's easy, when I swapped converters in the trans that's in the car it took about 2 hours. And I have no idea about a 4l60e converter weight. I assume it's alot lighter then this early 80e hd unit

interesting. I always wonder how much of a pain it would be to take out the 4l60e if I ever have to. I hope by that time I'll have a lift in the new garage. Carry on.

You probably will have to at some point. I mean it is a 4l60

Welp the trans swap didn't go quite as planned, turns out the early model 80es have a different pan then the two late model pans I had. Oh well I ordered a higher capacity pan with cooling tubes going through it and I will probably fabricate some sort of skid plate under the car.

Speaking of 4L60Es, I broke mine.
Got any leads on good used 4L60Es? Or got any leads on a good used T56?

No way?! It broke??? :P

I have a buddy with one I believe let me call him and see if he still has it. Also t56s are stupid expensive and are usually hammered, I would do a 350z 6speed. Way cheaper even after you adapt it.

Got the trans in stalled with the deep sump pan and got everything together and filled the trans, it was only then I realized I have the wrong bracket for the shifter. I have a 4l80e with a neutral safety switch bracket on and the older 80e does not have that so I have to dig up the old bracket or buy a new one for 25 bucks. I'll probably choose the latter, also capacity is now at 18qts, hahaha

Post some pictures of the cable and brackets for the shifter. I'm interested in switching to a 80e
