neither are a smart choice behind a big block. the torque tears them up quick.

That's why he said he chose a 4L80E. Actually I think the "crate" transmission is a 4L85E.

BO185, what kind of failures could I expect to see with my freshly rebuilt "poor case" 1993 4L80e?

Someone on craigslist in the entire surrounding area must buy them up as soon as they show up, then rebuilds them and resells them. Can't find one closer than 3.5 hours drive. I just put an email into pull a part asking what it would cost for them to pull one and load it for me, if they will do it. You can't just call them and ask about a part or they would have to hire 10 or so people to handle the phones all day just to answer "I don't know if we have that part". The other thing, it's almost an hour from me, most of it going 80mph on a 70mph hyw., so it's a good drive to just go look and see if they have any and find nothing. I did get a tip on one, but like I said, it's 3.5 hours away. Great price, I don't know why it's been on craigslist for a month already?? Good case, lines far apart. Tons of others even further away from me. May have to decide whether it's worth spending a complete day or more getting one, or paying for a rebuilt one, then again, they usually don't say online that the price is with a core... If I get one, I can leave the 4:10 gears in it. Or if I go back to the 3:42's and get the 4L80E, I will really be rolling down the highway at low rpm. I'll have to do the math.

Usually over heating issues, OD failure, and rear planetary issues, some of the ones with the fwd inputs did have a internal passage to the rear but in 97-98 IIR they physically moved the port. If its been rebuilt and is qulity rebuild with higher line pressures should be fine.

Most the failures were in heavy trucks so not so much HP vs heat built from towing heavy alot.

That's the problem with most wrecking yards is they want the core or more so money they get selling it for scrap.

Call local wrecking yards and see if they have a core 4L80 it, if you can get through the mouth breathers on the phone. Usually pay $100-200 for a good core maybe more. One trick is to call and ask for a "good" for 4L80 and see what the core charge is then call back later and ask if they have cores and try to get it for the same price.

www.car-part.com use 99-05 GM 2500hd or 3500hd truck with 6.0L gas. Will list yards local to you by part and by distance some even have prices.
