A 4L60 is just a renamed 700R4. The 4L60E was introduced in '93 or so and is linked to the ECM rather then the TV cable.
Depending on your gearing and driving habits you will probably want to upgrade the converter a bit along with the trans. Check out these guys. Trans Depot. I just used a 200R4 in my '56 wagon and couldn't be happier with the trans or service.
http://www.transdepot.net/700R4-Stag...age_p_459.html
This kit includes EVRYTHING necessary to install the trans and even includes a cooler and 2600 stall converter. Scroll down thru the list to see everything.

If you just want the trans here is a listing for the 700R4's.

You probably only need the Stage 1 though so look at that in the conversion package also.

Default ALOT depends on how you drive,

I have a 200r4 behind a hot 383, with no issues !

yes I do hammer it from time to time, but normal driving is 90% of the time,

If you want an honest opinion, I recommend DRW trans in Santee,
http://drwtransmission.com/

ask for Donnie (owner) and tell him cruzn57 (Lee) sent you ,

he can provide a trans that will give you worry free miles, and make suggestions about converters, upgrade parts, etc.

Thanks everyone.

So if a shop is going to already be taking out the engine then is it much more work to also take out the old transmission and put in a new one?

Not much more work, as long as you're installing the same type of trans.

Or can I keep my stock 700R4 as long as I don't launch it hard?

Thanks.
I bought the Blueprint 383 (roller cam) that dyno'd 445 HP and 454 fl-lbs. This outfit comes highly recommended in our neck of the woods and they said to go with the 700R4SS.

I see on here of another builder in CA that beefs up tranny's also, so they're closer to you. I would not go stock 700 with a 383. Just my $0.02

Did you get your 383 installed and running yet? I remember you had mentioned it before.

Thanks for the response.

So my local shop said they recommend taking my current 700R4 to their local transmission shop and having it strengthened to handle the GM 383. They're going to get back to me with a quote. I like the idea.

Thanks everyone.

Hey man...if it helps give you an idea of other costs, I have a 4L60E out of a 1998 truck going in for a rebuild (this is the same tranny as a 700R4, but electronic). Anyway, they quoted me $1500 for removal, rebuild, and reinstall. I asked them to increase it's capacity and do some mild upgrades (better clutch packs, servos, sun shell, and a few other things). Added about $200 to the quote so around $1700.

Now, keep in mind that mine is for a stock truck, but I might put a 383 in it at some point (but it'd be the HT383...no 400+ HP stuff here).

You might also start looking at torque converters. The stock 700's stall around 1800-2000 depending on which one you have.
