The Lou short shift arrived and I installed it 3/22/2019. So the car can shift through all gears and reverse, just waiting on the shop to tune it. The Lou short shift has a bend in it which makes the knob stick out to the right? Whatever, long as they can tune it I'll be swapping my Chinesium back in. I've been modifying it so that it should be able to reach reverse now. I'll be posting photos of that later.

I still have one from many years ago. Threaded for an aftermarket knob and I hated the rattle.

Pretty sure the angle is to position the knob better. Not to sure about it leaning to the right, though.

The issue was, I bought anything from Aliexpress.

That said, what I discovered was a lack of space for the springs to compress.

When the springs would fully depress, about 2 mm of space was still needed for the shifter to reach reverse.

I was left with 3 solutions:
1 • Cut the springs
2 • Drill out the holes that the springs press against in the top cap. (Hoping to not drill too deep.)
3 • Don't use the shifter at all.

I went with option 3. Using the stock shifter with the Lou short stick for now.

Mind taking a picture?

Wonder if there is a difference from the same shifter I sourced from amazon.

I just don't understand how the 4l60 wouldn't hold up to a low powered (no offense meant at all) setup. A mild, correctly built unit would hold that no problem. You should have got your money back from the half ass builder and found someone else. You probably had a worn valve body if the 3-4 kept burning.

I don't understand either hence I went to a manual.


300rwhp = stock 4l60e lost 3rd and 4th at 80k
Didn't expect it, but don't know how the car was treated for the fist 42k miles.

300rwhp = performabuilt stage 2 4l60e lasted 3 months
I paid $2,450 + $600 labor and 3 months later my differential gernaded. I went back to the shop saying please help me, I'm out of funds. They gave me an "ok" deal on a used differential and install, $450.00 THEN ON THE 2 HOUR DRIVE HOME I lost 3rd and 4th.
Performabuilt followed through on their warranty but the shop that did the install charged me $800 for the reinstall of the transmission saying they charged me more this time because they had to come tow me to their shop. (They offered me a tow, I didn't request a $200.00 tow from them!)

That shop ripped me off on other work / parts but I'll save that rant for another time, so moving on...

395rwhp (330rwtq) = performabuilt stage 2 4l60e lasted 2 years
Torque converter failed. Supposedly ruined the transmission.

380rwhp (2nd cam more rwtq)= stock 4l65e lasted 2 weeks
I bought a 4l65e with 18k miles on it from a reputable member on this website. I started going to a new shop and unfortunately they were over booked so they took my car to another shop behind them to do my install.

I wasn't aware of this until it was already done, the other shop didn't flush the transmission lines or the cooler.

380rwhp = rebuilt stock 4l65e lasted a month
Same ass hat shop that shouldn't be involved with my car trying to charge me for their smurf up. (I did end up paying $1,200 which was half of what they were charging me for their smurf up.)

401rwhp = rebuilt stock 4l65e lasted 1,500 miles
Went back to the shop that was supposed do the the work and said make this smurfing right! And he did. We installed a new torque converter from FTI, they re-ran the transmission lines (a bit ghetto) but made sure they were flushed. I ordered a new transmission cooler to be safe. Went back together, and essentially it lasted 2 years...


The main issue with all my 4l60e and 4l65e transmission was the loss of 3rd and 4th. Whenever I checked the transmission fluid, it always left black residue on the paper towel. I think the fluid was over heating and breaking down. My assumption is how the transmissions lines were run. They were too close to the Kooks *uncoated* headers.


Currently:
437rwhp = used t56 transmission with 65k on it installed by me.
So far, I know who installed it. I know how it was installed. I know how to troubleshoot most of it. So far, so good.

Yeah I'll take my gto's depressing time line over that situation.

Oct 2017 - Slave failure.








April 2019 - Clutch replaced. Still on Jacks.

If the shifter can be fixed with some machining I'll be happy to do it for you.
