Answers :

This isn't as easy as you may think. The output shaft is different between the two so the transfer case (4wd) or driveshaft (2wd) wont' fit together. The computer control is different in each application. I wouldn't think that the crossmember set up is the same either, of course, I've only seen the 4L80 in 3/4 and heavier trucks.
\015\012You can build a 4L60 E so it is pretty tough. Change the gear sets to 5 pinion, heavy duty shell, wider band, aftermarket clutch packs,etc. This is what I recommend to my customers
