Not so . . .

The 6L80E transmission is a "forced option" on the 5.3 and 6.2 1500 trucks. You gotta "check the box" anyway, but GM no longer offers the 4L60E on any trucks except for those equipped with the 4.3 V6 or the 4.8 V8.

EDIT: Nice sleeper WT, BTW!

AT the time I bought it the dealer asked what trans I wanted with the 5.3, I said 6sp. The only thing they told me is that if I ordered the 6sp with 3.42 gears I`d have the pay extra for the heavy duty cooling but not if I went with the 3.08s. Maybe a Canadian thing? There were some on the lot with a 5.3/4spd.

Anyway enough of that. I am getting anxious to get it back and proceed with the other mods, it was supposed to be ready for March 14th and now its April!

Nah, that would be a typo, I meant 6L80E; I'm well aware that HDs and CTS-Vs (and the upcoming ZL1) are the only vehicles available with the 6L90E. My point was that all 5.3 and 6.2 trucks are now 6-speeds and 4-speeds are only available on 4.3 and 4.8 trucks; I believe that began for 2011, but they may have done that in 2010.

Exactly what I was trying to say, except I fat-fingered the keyboard when I was typing the trans and I didn't notice

Hate to tell you, but the ZL1 Camaro is gonna be a stick-only car.

Not that I was gonna buy one, but IF I did I'd want an automatic . . .

Doesn't bother me in the least; if the ZL1 didn't have the shitty ergonomics inherent in the 5th-gen design, I would only want it with a manual. I just assumed both transmissions would carry over from the CTS-V.

What he said /\

This year was supposed to be the year I finally get myself a Z06, until I broke my Jeep's frame and my wife made me buy a truck. So I got one with 403hp Not as awesome as a 3200lb 505hp car, but oh well, that'll have to wait another couple of years
