Well first, that'* not your trans. You have a 4T60-HD.
And you may not need a full out race trans depending on what your goals are.
So, what engine mods are you really planning on doing?

Yeah, that trans isn't made for your car, and I imagine there would need to be some modifications just to make it fit.

May I suggest looking into either a shift kit or an overhaul with some heavier duty parts? It would be cheaper, and probably not as overkill.

I'd suggest saving your trans money seperately, and using it when you NEED to. Then have it custom built like I did (and Matt).

The only thing i'd ever do tranny wise is install a limited slip. Then again you don't have a 65. One wheel burnouts seem to be the #1 killer of our trannies.

Every single time, unless you're a one-wheel wonder turn and burn kinda guy. In which case you won't have a trans for very long.
