    Just wondering what all would be needed to use a 4L80E in a 76 K5 ????? I'm not a electronic wiz, so is it do-able ??? Sence I do alot of long distance interstate driving, the thought of overdrive would be nice.

    Yes it's plenty doable. I'm putting one in my 53 willys... You need a stand alone computer that will run it. GMPP makes one that works real nice and is custom programmable for around $900.

    You can get a stand alone factory 4L80E computer and harness from a 91-93 diesel truck. I have seen them for 300-400. Or you can get a TBI gas computer & harness for a 4L80E truck 91-94. I just bought one on ebay for 217. OR you can find used after market stand alone computer & harnesses (TCI, etc), I have one I paid 350 for.

    /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Kewl. My thinking for the future, if I don't get a sm465/NP-205 is for a 4L80E/NP-205 combo. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
