Give the choice between 60 or 80 the 80 is a no brainer, but the 60 is no slouch



The TCI stuff is amazing. A friends dad has the 6speed auto behind an LS7 in an early 40s ford and he has never once said anything bad about it
agreed.....i just intended point out that the stock tranny is pretty bullet proof as compared to the competition.....the perception among the masses usually hints otherwise.....we see almost no transmission failures at the dealership level and most we do see are caused by abuse....lol the guy who is actually doing the trans work is a trainee....im level 4 trans but i have enough diesel work to keep me busy....
