Updating the 4l60e
I imagine this whole install and thread will take me about 6 months to a year to complete.

With the help of the experts at B&M and TCI, we traced the 700’s initially checkered past and bring you up to date on some of the countless improvements incorporated over the years as GM continually refined the basic design to keep up with the increasing output of the engines it was installed behind.
