So i currently have a 1996 chevy 1500 with a 350 5.7 motor with 200k miles and a 4L60E transmission i bought straight from chevy that has about 3k miles now. but now my motor is getting ready to go so I'm trying to figure out what i want to do. I was thinking about rebuilding my 350 into a 383 stroker. with that, once i rebuild my motor, the next step is to figure out what to do with my tranny. I've heard that a 383 will nuke a stock 4l60e so i was wondering if it would be worth it to put a stage 2 transgo shift kit and maybe a bigger torque converter in it or if the tranny would still go out even with the shift kit. I'm still somewhat new to messing with internals like this so any information is helpful. Thank you in advance
