I thought about doing 3.91 and a S/C but there isn't much of a point because your car's RPM will go up slightly but just enough to where your S/C is always running (If you get say an IPF) and you don't want that.

The 6L50E was designed by the folks that designed the Allison transmission (HD truck transmission ). Tuning of this transmission is what is needed to keep it alive and a transmission cooler!!!! Yes, Derrick found the limits for sure with his setup but I feel the rest of us in the 400HP - 450HP range will be good for a while with the transmission. So far over 230 runs with my car and still going strong. Karma don't kick me now please.

Yeah, and that was after several pulls on the dyno with a locked single-disk converter. I'm not sure a 6L80 would have lasted long under that sort of punishment.
