Default who rebuilt a 4l80e them selfs?

so trans is acting up not a good sign when im a few weeks away from putting a h/c/i lq4

so being its just after Christmas, paying the machine shop & still needing some little stuff for the engine but budget is in the RED

so i never been inside a trans, assembled engines, completed lsx swaps & suspension work so i know my way around a little not a pro tho, im looking to find out how hard is it? im very intimidated by the 500 parts i wont lie lol

so did you rebuilt yours?
was you successful?
where did you get parts from and what upgrades?

I havenít but there are plenty of good YouTube videos out there.

The biggest thing is checking the clearances.

Buy an ATSG manual and get all the info you need

if you've watched youtube video and your head is still spinning...then watch again or give it to someone that knows what they're doing

I was going to rebuild mine..until i took it apart and compared all the parts in the rebuild kit to the stuff i took out. There were a bunch of seals that i couldn't see that needed replaced. Somewhere in my build there i have a pic of all the hard parts laid out in the order i came out. I did everything on my truck but the trans is one thing i will not do or attempt again.

yeah i must of watched about 6 hours of vids the last few days to see what im up against i think with every thing online and a good repair manual i might just pull it off so now just need to figure out what kit to go with

also seen online how to make a trans holder out of my engine stand for less then probably $30 & how to get around not having all the specialty tools that will be a big help

jakes performance for the 80e kit.
Has a good matched set of parts. parts proven to work together well.
Also comes with shift kit instructions and can come with a manual also.

IMO best/most complete kit out there currently

jakes performance starts @ $825 for the stage ll kit thats not in the budget and i dont think its needed for the power im looking to make 380/400ish

from what i found online the "80" is rated for up to 8,000 pound vehicle and up to 450 ft pounds of torque so a stock rebuilt would work but id like "some" stuff upgraded like the clutches for sure and probably a HD2 shift kit
