Are you going to wrap the crossover pipe at some point?

Thank you much, glad my neverending build could help in getting the ball rolling on yours. Be sure to post your progress! If I had to do it all over again I'd probably go with a 4L80 since its cheaper and easier to build up if you're going to push big power. I went with the 6L80 kinda for the wow factor of a 6 speed. I'll be leaning on my tuner to make the trans live in stock form since I'd like to have someone upwards of 700 rwhp when I'm done. It's safer to build the trans to reliably hold that kinda power but that costs a small fortune. The entire case is bigger/taller so the entire tunnel was raised about 2". Another thing is the pan for the trans, it sits rather low. The truck pan is out of the question, the G8 pan is the shallowest but is the most prone to pickup issues. I'm using a 5th Gen pan but since the car wont be super low I'm hoping it wont be an issue.

Yep, she's nowhere near running right now but I will as that gets closer to happening.
