Anyone over here have one? I was just checking out thier site yesterday and they seem to have a really well put together kit not to mention that there are a plethora of Chevy 5.3 engines and 4l80e trans laying around for a fairly low dollar
I've talked to them a number of times since October. Actually you want the 6L80 trans, it has a lower first gear. We just got a Hemi Grand Cherokee Overland so my JK V8 has to wait now.
Yeah but the big turn off of the 6l80e for me is that I can't use my rubi tcase. With the 4l80e you still can though. Not to mention the 6l80e is fairly new and high tech yet so they bring a VERY nice sum over the 4l80e which is a dime a dozen. The 5.3 swap is a dream of mine and I hope to be able to do it one day. You can find 5.3's with the 4l80e's for less than what the conversion kit that they sell cost! GM put them in EVERYTHING rwd that they make and they're VERY, VERY durable engines that will make hemi embarrassing HP with just a handeful of mods. I read a super chevy magazine where they were well over 400 crank hp with worked up stock heads, very mild cam, LS2 intake and TB, headers and a tune!!
