beef up the internals of the tranny, and it could be a really unique mod.

Or use the "bulletproof" tranny, but then why not just use the 4t80....

Because it defeats the purpose of just bolting it on. Got to think lego style, its easy that way

Well, you hook up an LT1 to a 4T60-e, you may as well have a tranny made out of legos.

My 2-year-old = LT1
4t60e = legos

Hmm, I can see the LT1 going on a RWD 4l60-e, cause those can handle more power. But the FWD version sounds nuts.
