difference in 4l60e v6-v8

What's the difference in the shell? Could I fit a v8 4l60e in my v6?

IIRC the difference is the bell housing.

I've heard the internals on the v6 are the same to v8s... That's doesn't make since to me. Swap the bell housing and your good to go...Ive also heard its completely different?? You should try it lol.

It's not quite that simple, the input shaft is different, and depending on the year transmission the bell housing isn't removable, IIRC 99+ a4's for our cars are removable. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on that.

The pump, bellhousing, stator, input shaft, torque converter, and a few other things are different between the V6 and V8 4L60E. It's not worth the effort to convert one, because by the time you've finished, you could have bought the right one for cheaper.

Well you kinda have to use a V6 trans for a V6 and a V8 trans for a V8.

Could you swap the tail shaft of a v8 truck trans with a v6 f body? That way it would work with the 5.3 in my v6 firebird?

You're wrong on that.

Pretty much exactly what Zex just said. The stator is part of the pump, but still different nonetheless so who gives a ****. It would be worth the effort if changing out the input shaft didn't require having to remove the entire input drum and swapping out everything inside, which I highly do NOT recommend most people attempt to do. Even if you knew how to do it yourself, converting is still more expensive unless you have a good connection on parts.

Sorry for stealing your thread micheal, anybody have input on swapping tail shafts? Is it a strait bolt on? How is the output shaft swapped?
