ok all you transmission guys, IM also VERY interested in the answers because I purchased a 4L80E to install in my 1985 corvette when I do the swap to the big block engine , because theres no 700r4 thats going to handle the torque numbers that engine will produce, so any info will be greatly appreciated, on how to find cheap ECU/TRANS controllers OR how to modify the 4L80E trans to full manual control. hopefully theres some knowledgeable trans guys on THIS SITE that can help!!?? converters available ? lock up/non-lock-up? performance shift kits? ETC. IM SURE MOST GUYS CAN USE GOOD INFO! heres all the links Ive found......... NO! NOT ALL THOSE QUESTIONS ARE FULLY ANSWERED IN THE LINKS

Give Geoff Skorupa at Performance Technical Center in Elk Grove Village, IL. a call (847-228-7256), he built the custom tail housing and C-beam on John Meaney's car, see link, that you'll need. He's in the process of doing my car now. It'll have a Rossler built 4L80E and a Vigilante 2600-2800 lock-up converter. The computer and custom tail housing for the 4L80E are expensive, I paid $2600 for the computer, trans, converter and the tail shaft is well over $1000 to have machined out of billet aluminum. I'm not sure what he would charge a customer, it was no cost to me as it was part of a deal we made a while ago.
