  • 4L80E Stand alone kit

    hi guys im looking to put a 4l80e behind a 427 in my project truck. i heard there is a kit out there that allows me to do this without having a computer control installed? i really would like the 4 gears offered by the 4l80e but dont want to mess with all the sensors and computers.

    my other option is a th400, BUT it only has 3 gears. so i would like to have one more. thanks in advance!

    There is a GMPP, TCI and other standalone computers that will comtrol teh electric 4l80e trans.

    there are also full manual shiftkits that will allow the use of teh 4l80e WITHOUT any computer at all. PATC offers a manual shift kit for sure.
    You have to shift this kit manually. If the selector is in 3rd gear, the trans is in 3rd gear, even at a stoplight. With the manual shiftkit, you will lose teh TCC lockup function however.

    I have seen teh TCI computers go for $350US on ebay before. These usually drive a 4l60e AND 4l80e trans.

    Compushift also makes a 4l60e/4l80e trans control computer is also in the PATC link.

    Here is some info from PATC The manual shift kit is about 1/4 way down the link. Its listed at $295

        the whole manual shift thing would kinda suck so i dont think i would want to go with that option. i would really like to have the extra gear offered with the 4l80 but might just end up with a th400. seems like its going to get quite expensive to get a 4l80 up and running

                You can also use a diesel 4l80 ECM, from 91-ish to 94, whenever they weren't electronic. I found a local one that is rebuilt, or go with a 4500....

                  what would the diesel ecm buy me? could the 4l80 still shift on its own like normal?

                    There was NEVER an NON electric 4l80e. Ever since they were used, since 1991 in teh trucks they were shifted electronically.
                    The E of 4l80E, means electronically shifted.

                      I didn't mean not electonically controlled Imeant that they were either mechanically injected or it was controlled by an ECM, or turbo'd. All I know is that the early ones were like this....

                        Yes, some diesels used a stand alone controller for the 4L80E, but they are no cheaper than any other one unless you get lucky at the salvage yard.

                            so if i found a 4l80 out of an early 90's diesel it would have the stand alone unit with it?

                              Some do but I don't know the details. Wish I could help more but I don't want to tell you wrong.
