I am looking to do a powertrain swap and before I start thinking about which package to use, I need some info on the transmission. One of the mods I’ll be doing will be to incorporate paddle shifters to “manually” shift through the gears if wanted. For that, I was looking at the 6L80 tansmission, as I would prefer to have 6 speeds. However I do not know if it will fit in my project, but I know the 4L60 will fit without any problems.
Does anyone have the dimensions or the physical differences between the 2 transmissions? I seem to be getting conflicting information, as some tell me one is much larger than the other, while others say they are about the same size.
One gentleman told me that the 4L60 has a circumference of 55” and is 18” tall and that the 6L80 is 50” around and 18” tall. The main difference being the output shaft is located higher on the 6L80.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
