Just to clarify, you also recommended to swap a 4L or a TR6060 which was neither an option. In the end it didn't work out that way, but with the help of others we are making progress.

yes you said you wanted to road race it, so yes a tr6060 is a better option for that, you asked what trans would take all the abuse you throw at it, i said the 4l80e....they are options, you just dont want the spend the money on those coversions.. talk to the majority of the big shops that makes these cars fast (not the tranny shops) most will tell you the 6l80e is unreliable above 650 rwhp in a 4000+ lb car built or not... regardless of who tune is on it, honestly i have had much better luck with stock trannies living the longest at that power level.... learn the hardway, blow money... its your dime....i only do this for a living what do i know , sorry for keeping it real

The problem that I have is a lot of shops are shying away from the 6L80 like its a bad omen. No one is giving this trans a fair play. It's not going away anytime soon. There must be good reason that GM is keeping the trans. (ZL-1, CTS-V, A6 Vettes)

When the 4L came out it was the same thing, "lets stay away from it because its new" Now what? Everyone and their mom says to replace the 6L for a 4L.

There a couple of guys here that can attest to the 6L. One of them is running 10.09 in a G8. Built by Century Transmissions. Another A6 Vette is running 10.15. Built by Century Transmissions.


This is LMR's 9 second Camaro. With a built 6L80.

Yes, its my money, but if I can help establish a good rep for the 6L I will.

I got to be able to get in the low 7s with the A6 guys. I'm so close in trap speeds. What kills me is Irwindale isn't level at the staging so I have to use my e-brake or I roll a little and sometimes trip the beam a tad early.

thats great ! those trans live for a while.... but they are a wear item at high power levels, its not if but when it goes... and your talking about the 4l... what your thinking about is 4L60e, the 4l80e is and always was a stout trans because its origins stem from the th400 transmission... please dont talk down to me about these transmissions like i dont know whats up, i tune these cars and transmission nearly on a daily basis... i have not dealt with a century built transmission maybe they figured something out, i sure up so!! because believe me i want these trannies to work too...

by the way you can here the trans slip and hit the rev limiter on nearly every shift in that video.....

Not sure what Adam was running when he ran the 10.1 time but when he ran the 1/8 mile I was there and he had the 2.8L then.

I saw him last Thursday but he had a customers Mustang with a Vortech that he was running. When I go pick up the Black truck I will ask him.

BTW, He will be deep in the 9's no problem. When he ran the older times he still had the stock manifolds, exhaust, suspension, etc.

Going to try and hit the 9's before him. Would have been done wit the twins but had a tranny line leak all the fluid out. I will get a new line tomorrow to replace the stock line coming out of the radiator.

Nope. They were running the 2.8L until they built the engine then switched to the 3.6L. If you click on the link under "Details" it will take you to his timeslip post.

As for the engine he had a thread about the fact that the rods got stretched.

Is this John? If so, you need to be faster than the Silverado to be on the list.

When was that run the fastest I seen you go was like 13.3.

Can I get in?

Best time so far at the less than stellar traction track known as Qualcomm Race Legal. That being said it's still a lot of fun.

Car has way more in it than this slip shows but need to get it to hook. Clutch going in and 18's with DR's on the way. Hope to be in the 7's next time out.

RPS TWIN CARBON. Yeah I would have gone last weekend but I haven't finished putting it in. Heard Fontana is so packed you only get a couple of runs in. True?

In any case I do want to run the 1/4 where I can let the car get more use of the top end power.
