Default whats the best place to buy a highly dependable 4l80e?

Im finally in the market for a well built 4l80e that id like to "overbuild" and I want to hear from you fellow members what place or places you recommend,best customer service&most importantly the best warranty. Im like a lot of you who pinch pennies I want the best for my money and im looking into a full 4l60-4l80e conversion. Also if some tranny shops could chime in id appreciate it.

I think we build the best 4L80E on the market bar none.
That's not to say there aren't other quality builders out there because there are some good shops out there who do conscientious work.

We have devoted more development time to the 4L80E than anyone and continue to do so.

Our relatively low overhead allows us to sell a top of the line product for a reasonable price. We aren't trying to be the lowest price in the market but we're also not cutting any corners to get the job done.

We have a good warranty and oftentimes stand behind our product even if it;'s out of warranty, because our goal is for you to be successful and our product to live up to it's reputation.

We do also help put together kits to install these in the 4th Gen F-Bodies.

Give us a call at the shop, we'll need to know a few things so we get you the right crossmember.

Room to grow would be a Stage 5. $4350 but 10% off right now.
I sell the controllers for almost $100 under MSRP with a trans.

We can put a package together for you though.

I have an 80 from Jakes and I'm very happy with it. I beat the **** out of it every chance I get. The guys up there are cool as hell and really know what they are doing. There's a lot of people on here that would vouch for them as well.

I'm happy with my stage 2 from Jake's, trans break works awesome and it hasn't missed a beat. I'm going to put 700+ hp to it within the next few weeks..

I've got plenty of customers who have used his and went to mine that can give feedback.

Jakes!! I did alot of research and it came down to them. I ordered a Stage V from them. Besides their reputation of quality/reliable work their customer service is great!!! Can't go wrong with Jakes.

Talking

Well I decided on Jakes and Im making the long 13and a half hour drive at 3a.m. tomorrow morning to meet up with Mike,Jake and the guys to install my stage 5! I figured what the hell go big or go home and do it right the first time. From the first phone call,to answering emails they have giving me every bit of 100% customer service and very competitive pricing! Im pumped to get it in and installed so I can finally feel what my d1 has to offer. Ill keep everyone updated tomorrow &Thursday.
