Selecting a Hughes Performance 4L80E transmission for your vehicle opens the doors to all kinds of possibilities. While we offer 4L80E transmissions for all popular GM V8 engines, we have also developed a custom bellhousing system for the 4L80E that allow you to install this transmission behind a wide variety of non-GM engines without the necessity for any bulky and poorly fitting adapters. With our custom bellhousing system we offer 4L80E packages for the following engines: modular Ford (4.6L, 5.0L Coyote, and 5.4L), small block Ford (including 289, 302, 5.0L, 351W, 5.8L, and 351C), big block Ford 385 series (429 and 460) and Ford Modified (351M and 400M). Each bellhousing system is fully SFI-certified and requires no external bellhousing shields when used in a drag racing application. Each bellhousing system allows the use of an original style starter in the original position.
We offer a variety of electronic transmission control units that take all the guess work, complexity, and intimidation out of retro-fitting a 4L80E into your vehicle. Some of our electronic transmission control units are pre-programmed and require no software, laptop, or PC for installation, tuning, or proper function. Each controller includes a pre-terminated wiring harness for simple “plug-n-play” operation. We offer models with an optional throttle position sensor (TPS) kit and mounting bracket that will work with virtually any carburetor, and also have models available that simply splice into an existing TPS on an EFI-equipped engine. Our premium controller is manufactured by Compushift and includes a simple hand-held calibration module that allows you to fine tune shift firmness, shift timing, lock-up function, and select between automatic and full manual operating modes. The Compushift module also provides a real-time display of transmission function data including range, fluid temperature, line pressure, etc. Paddle shifters are readily available and can easily be installed with either controller option.
