for 50hp i think the 4l80 will handle it, its not too bad of a tranny, but i agree a shift kit should help make things stay together a little better
EFI live, or maybe a diablosport predator, any intake that you like, and a good 3" exhaust, magnalow makes a nice, throaty but not obnoxious sounding exhaust for the GM 5.3, im guessing it should bolt onto a 6.0
the tranny is bone stock and hasnt been touched for the 150k that it has on it. i dont want to turn up the power and kill the trans. its probably time for a trans flush, new filter, and maybe a shift kit.
well, i decided im going to try to find another 4l80e and build it myself, then ill just swap it and my stocker. after that come either just a tune from Blackbear since it since it will have the intake and exhaust already done or its gettin some injectors, a turbo, and a tune. this could get fun.
