2015 1LE - auto swap

Looking into adding a built 4L80e on my 2015 1LE and had a few questions. My shop is currently using an RPM stage 5 4L80e, but I shopped around and found much better deals through Jake's Racing transmissions, so my question is if anyone else has any experience with Jakes or RPM? Is one superior to the other?

I am also torn on doing the swap altogether because it is a 1LE. My other choice would be to add a monster triple disc clutch, ported heads and port the LSA blower I have. Question is, which will net me the best e.t? The auto swap or adding the port work to the heads and blower? Car has run a best of 10.65@134 recently, so I would love to run a lower 10 or high 9! Any feedback is appreciated.

Auto will be better than the m6. I sold my m6 and will be doing a 4l80 swap soon.

I have a jakes stage 3 4l80 in mine. It has been good so far. Rpm is top notch also. At that level an auto is faster and way more consistent.

Keep the stick setup and put it back to stock if you get rid of the car.

RPM is a good shop, I've been to it and race with them. They build stuff to last.

Personally you are taking a road race car and taking it out of its element. Everyone likes to go fast at the drag strip. What do you do with the car? Auto swap will net you the best ET but the driving factor on the roads kind of is blah. RPM is one of the best transmission/rear end shops around. I have a stage 2 dif from them with 4.10s in my C6 and literally it was set up so good it is quieter then stock. Plus RPM stands behind their stuff.

That's what I was thinking.
