Everything except the valve body and pump will interchange, if that makes sense. But armed with the information in this story, these details should offer some guideposts for what to look for in terms of bellhousing depths, crankshaft bolt patterns, and torque converter differences. The only thing really worth upgrading internally for a stock or near stock engine is the reactive shell. But 4L65E, 4L70E, and 4L80E transmissions are similar but require some parts swapping to make them work. It is now ready to plug into the 4L80E transmission. What was wrong with your trans?

I don't want to put it in and take it right back out as an experiment if I don't have to. Not sure if that was my case, but it looks promising. In generic terms, it is thermochemical diffusion process, whereby ferrous parts are processsed in molten salt with a specific nitrogen potential.
Have a question we have a 99 4x4 Suburban with a 5. An Iowa native, Smith served a variety of roles at Car Craft before moving to the senior editor role at Hot Rod and Chevy High Performance, and ultimately returning to Car Craft.
