That's a very generalized question. Does the car have any current modifications? Are you capable of installing things yourself? Do you want to make more power now and break stuff or build up the car before adding power?

If I personally were going to drop another $4k into my car it would be a 9 inch and some headers.

You have a really well built 60E, why would you want an 80E?

Even a well built 4L60E is a ticking time bomb when you are making 600+

My transmission just went out, I need a new one. Should I go 80E or built 60E? You can PM me as to not junk up the OP's thread, I'd just like some advice.
