New 4L80E Transmission Installed

Got my new 4L80E installed. It's a manumatic transmission that gives me the fun of shifting, without the stress of the clutch in traffic. The shift is also instantaneous so I can stay in boost the entire time. Here's a quick video of how it works.

It has a Circle D multi disk torque converter (3800 stall), one piece driveshaft and a B&M ratchet shifter.

I didn't know you upped the stall to 3800... Why was that? How's the gas mileage now?

I'd say I'm getting at least 10-12 mph.

I'm really not sure...I'm bad about watching it. I'll see if I can remember to test it the next time I fill up.

You're taking it out of context. He had mentioned his gas mileage prior to this mod. He just wants to see a comparison with the new tranny.

Like that, very sweet set up. My 98 SS I put a TH350 in it with T-brake. Was well worth it to handle the power and not have to worry about the tranny anymore.

Wonder what would the cost on this be ??? or ballpark ???

I agree. I knew I'd need it once the 427 went in, so I decided to go ahead and do it now.

The SFAM (super fast arm module) is optional, and is a VERY expensive upgrade.

I think it was only one person who asked... and it was directed at 3200 vs 3800 stall. Since the tranny and converter were the only things swapped this time around. Has nothing to do w/ fun factor...

Send me a PM, and I can put you in touch with my builder. I know he can put one together and ship it to you.

Yes it is. The other cool piece is that everything works.

Backup Sensors
Speedometer
Reverse Lights
Trans Temp
Stabilitrak


It even shows R when I put it in reverse. This is no easy task since the transmission computer is gone. Of course there are some codes we had to hide since the main computer is still looking for the old transmission.

He went with a multi disk convertor with this one to prepare for the next build. Could have kept the same one, but with an LSX on the way......

Thanks. As you know, I just put a stall in my tranny. I'd like to get some use out of it.

OK...I have to correct myself. My brain wasn't functioning when I posted this.

The transmissions are completely different, so your torque converter wouldn't fit on the 4L80. My 6L80 was built, so I just sold everything including the TC.
