Check out Car-parts.com. It's a website that searches all the junk yards around your area. Look up a 2009 Chevy express van 3500. In the photo was one with 18,800 miles with a 4l80e. Doesn't have a price but call and haggle with them.

Awesome lead. I got on it today. I called a few places from the site. Seems they still want a lot to start from. That one was 4K and they didn't want to negotiate. they haven't even go it running since the tank was removed on it. This is what always worries me on drop outs. Again thanks a ton for the site info.

Try to do drive by wire, cruise control will be easier.....I am installing a Dakota Digital cruise control....I'll let you know how it goes....

T,
Hey Tom what is "earlier to 60". Sorry I am a bit dull on LS swaps, but I learn quick
Did you go with Dakota digital for your gauges? I was thinking of keep it original and get an adapter from them for the speedo. But I will need to have some kind of monitoring for everything else.

Oops....I meant to say "I suggested earlier in the thread to do a 4L60E".....forgot a couple of words...

Yes went Dakota Digital. The VHX series looks as close to stock as I have seen. Don't think they have an adapter to run a stock speedo...you would need a tail shaft adapter from Jags That Run. They do have a Hall Effect sender to convert a stock trans speedo gear to electronic output for an electronic speedo gauge...

Just put on a ls3 intake and get a wiring harness from psi and your set. Most of the vans are 2 wheel drive and will come with the 4l80. Love the Ls swaps and won't run anything else. :+1:
Wow thanks for the info. I didnt know that. Looking a little deeper an Ly6 makes 385hp/400tq. With an intake and tune you up over 400 hp for sure.

Not a problem. You can get lucky and find a place that doesn't know what they have and I've seen that motor and 4l80e bought for $1800. I've seen one with a decent cam, long tubes, and a fast 90 mani make over 450whp through a six speed.

I'm also still interested in any extra parts you might be trying to get rid of. I messaged you awhile back. Thanks.

Man holidays have been very busy. Finally this week I will get back into the build. My chrome pieces should be done soon, and I will post photos of the work. I need to get into the column and finish installing. It seems I have tons of rain here in the "so called" deep drought California so I will likely hold of the underside painting.
On another note if anyone has seen this shifter before, could you possiblly identify what it is? I want to sell it to someone that can use it. Also if someone can post their set up on the counsel shifter I would love it. I am just trying to figure how to set it up. THX

Looks similar to mine and mine is from a 66 SS nova.

Thank you for the reply. Mine is totally different on the placement and the main bracket which bolts it to the floor hump. I believe I will buy an aftermarket one from Shiftworks instead. I have only found 1 on eBay that was original for 66-67 like yours and they are asking stupid money for it.

But on anther note I wish I knew what this shifter came out of so I can sell it to someone with the right car to use. I can imagine there is someone out there like me looking for the direct bolt in, but with a different model car.

Thanks Tom. You nailed it! Now I can advertise it correctly on CL. Just my luck I get stuck with an Impala shifter.
