Looking For Trouble
^^^This the truth. Pulled my 10r80 4 times and the last time we pulled it a Turbo 400 took its place. You always hear the good. When something bad happens it is swept under the rug.The 6R80 is proven however the forward planetary is the weak link, once you do a billet planetary or a 4R200 hub it's pretty much bulletproof. The clutch packs in the 6R80 have more surface area than the 10R80, I put money on it that the 2018's running 8.01 on a 10R80 are smoking those clutches and have those transmissions out more than they care to tell you. I smoked the Mc Leod ones at 900 whp.
Good luck.i have my 17 at limitless in Houston getting turbo’d and 6r80 swapped.....they see no issues with getting 1500rwhp with billet internals, clutch packs and circle d converter?
they have 2018’s running 8.01’s daily driven on 10r80’s. They actually talked me out of a glide swap and stick witht he 6r80
