This and call it a day. Had one on my TH400 turbo T/A and it never had one issue in hot weather. If it can cool a TH400 with a stall and no lock up, it will cool your modern trans

Kinda shocked you go to those temps, esp with overdrive lock up

I think it’s more of an issue with location of the trans cooler. I left the car at my girlfriends over the weekend barely limping it back to her place.

I towed it home tonight and I’ll start tearing into it tomorrow to see what cooler is in the car, location and if it’s got a fan on it or not.

This isn’t 2013, lol. They have the 6L80 figured out now. There’s a guy in IN with a C6 going like mid 8’s with a basically stock unit.

Any info on the car and who tuned it?

This car was tuned by bluecat out of Kentucky

Damn Jason, I like that.

Just don’t sell the Chevelle, I like that more.

Not touching that one…

On another note I’m anxiously awaiting HPT to arrive today, I’m ready to scan the car, look at what dummy codes got thrown and log some data to see wtf is going on.

Worst case scenario if it’s what I think it is, I’ll be starting tear down tonight to drop the rear cradle and pull the trans.

I've made many a 6L owner very happy. Gimme a shout at 630-532-7027, and we can go over a few things.

HP Tuners arrived today, of course it was a P0700 as I expected which signifies issues with the 6L80E.

I reset the codes and went for a quick cruise and it appears I have all gears, it must have just gone into limp mode when it threw the code to avoid further damage.

Took it for a rip and it seemed to shift pretty fine with the trans very cool < 150 degrees.

Next steps are going to be draining the fluid for a visual inspection and drop the pan to look for shineys!

Hate to say it. But don't waste you're time. It's already hurt.

Oh I’m almost confident it is hurt, draining the fluid and pulling the pan should confirm it. If that’s the case I’ll pull it and most likely have it built by Tim King.

Redline is better. And more local.

Tim is great, but I've had a couple of his builds apart, and they're nothing exotic. Also, both were hurt at less HP than they were "rated" to handle. In all reality, there are really only like 3 places that sell the good hard parts, so its all about details.

Ask daturbosix daturbosix what my GTP "Tim King Built" trans looked like back when he had the car.

(assuming its the same person)

Tim is a nice guy from my dealings with him. I can’t hate on him because the 4t65ehd is a shitty transmission, but mine grenaded itself as well.

He built mine, I took it to the track (maybe days later) and the input shaft snapped...because he put in the shit one and not the good one. Trans was taken apart and iirc, daturbosix daturbosix said everything looked stock.
