Jannetty Racing usually has bullet proof 6l80e's ready to go. If not, they can build you one, along with grate customer support, and the right tune so you don't have any more problems down the road.

I had a 6L80 built by ARD and no problems along with alot of other people in the H-Town Camaro Club. I actually just sold it about a month ago to another HTCC camaro.

Give Owen at ARD a call and describe the problem, he can probably give you some idea of what could have been damaged and the cost of getting it rebuilt.

how did your tranny burn up?

I'm guessing you have some heavy motor work?

Just got off the phone with mike @ centry transmission looks like I'm going with the
Super 6l80 but I'm still going to research before I settle with who I'm going to use.
They said they have these in 900rwhp g8 with no problems.

Dare I even ask the most known question on this site? (Will it void my trans warranty?)

Maybe the dealer would install one for me.
