Sounded funny for a couple of days so I did a trans service,filter,gasket etc. still made noise. So today I went to get my nitrous tune at Vector Motorsports. I asked my tuner Steve about the noise and he wanted to check it out before the dyno. He said wow I never heard a noise like that. I checked the trans fluid and was a little full. And seemed to drive better. So Steve put it on the dyno just to see if it was slipping. And after two pulls na you could hear one hell of a slip:(

And was only like 385hp. So we never sprayed it. Well on the way home all the fun began. After 1.5 hour drive and 1.5 hours left to get home, it totally takes a crap on the highway. Wouldn't move. After playing with the pedal I got the converter to catch second gear. Drove all the way to my moms like that. Now waiting on a flat bed. I'm broke from the spray so gonna have to build it myself or let it sit this summer and still no spray;(

Although it did take a hell of a beating, daily. R. I. P.

What does one upgrade too when the 6l80e dies, or do you just rebuild it?
There are companies that make upgraded parts for the transmission that are currently holding in cars making ~800rwhp. I think the cost is around 3k to have someone rebuild it for you and you can buy the parts for way cheaper if you want to do it on your own.

He told me one time about some of his tranny builds and he fabbed up some of his own internals. DoughG8's is holding strong, and it's been built for some time now. I want to say they initially tried some of the "upgraded" clutch packs, and finally after no success Rick took matters into his own hands.

Call Rick and see what parts he uses and see if we can get them. We will build it bro. No problem. That poor car took a lot of abuse! Driver mod needed also...
