After the completion of a 4L60e to 4L80e transmission swap, it is still necessary to reprogram your ECU to recognize the new 4L80e transmission. One way to do this is with a Transmission Control Unit that you can find on Amazon. For the price of that unit, I opted to get HPTuners with a couple […]
So to be clear, this is YOU asking YOURSELF if you can fix your own car. My answer is absolutely! Flashback to 2015. Here’s my Tahoe on the flatbed all broken down and on it’s way to the shop. The problem? I ran over something that tore a fuel line and wasn’t getting any gas […]
Here, we are going to explore the actual hands on steps in our 4L60e to 4L80e Swap in my 2002 Chevy Tahoe 4×4. The first thing I wanted to do was clean out the lines and the trans coolers of any fluid and possible debris from my old 4L60e. I used a bottle of Kooler […]
I bought my Chevy Tahoe new in Sept, 2001. In December of 2001, I put a bug guard on the hood (in the snow), and I remember being proud of my very first mod ever. Somewhere in those early days, I bought the cold air intake and a performance muffler. I didn’t mod the car […]

I have to be honest, I’ve never done this before, so after scouring the internet for weeks, (might have been months), I decided to just follow Sloppy Mechanics […]
because my driveway is very steep and I can’t get the Tahoe up the drive.
recently and you might be surprised that I am happy about the whole thing.
Installing Glow Shift Gauges was a pretty involved process, but if you’ve done performance mods on your engine, definitely WELL worth it! Hardest part will be finding a spot to go through the firewall. Luckily for me, I already did this when I installed my aftermarket amplifier. I made a full video on where to […]
My biggest question about getting long tube headers was, “how would they sound”? Would they be too loud? I found several long tube headers audio bytes on YouTube, but rarely did I find one with a before and after clip that actually sounded clear. Most were recorded with nothing more than the guy’s cell phone […]
