Are you going to attempt to build a 4L60E yourself? These are not beginners transmissions. The tools to build one correctly can cost near $500.

I wouldn't waste money on anything less than a 3k stall converter from a name brand company.

Then, if they know what they're doing, they should know what parts to put in. I certainly know nobody brings their own parts to me...LOL I've been doing it for 23 years, and I have no idea what "double bump" the clutches is??? TThere are better servos than the "Corvette" unit. Besides, any GOOD 4L60E builder would tell you that your trans already has a "Corvette" servo. If he doesn't know that, maybe he's not the right person for the job...LOL

I'm not really worried about gas as long as i have the right speed setup that's not an issue, I'm just trying to get as much knowledge as possible

I don't mean to come off harsh, but I see this ALOT. If you knew how many times I've heard, "well, he's never built a 4L60Es, but he's built a fre turbo 350s"... What it usually ends up as somebody spending alot of money on "performance" parts that actually end up hurting the operation or longevity of a 4L60E. Then, they have their "buddy" put it together, and it either doesn't work or lasts a week. You'll save money in the long run by just have a professional build it.

If you go with a yank ss series converter, gas mileage will be pretty good still. They drive around pretty close to stock but really perform when you nail it. I'd look at around a 32-3600 ss converter especially if you don't plan on going bigger than bolt ons or a small cam.
