    I guess I didn't state myself clearly "4L60 guys are just jealous" and I said sometimes you get a good one!

    the way you said it makes it look like you think it's a gem of a find if you can get an nv3500 to hold together after a v8 swap, but what i'm saying is that after my years of research, reading up on builds, and even talking to some of the manufacturers, it's the exception to find one that craps out. my conclusions were that when behind comparable moderate-build engines, i've seen worlds more 4L60s that need rebuilds than 1/2ton 5speeds.

    In its defense, a base 10 system is by far the easiest to work with. Same goes for fahrenheit and Celsius, why base your whole temperature system off body heat- Kelvin is better than celsius. There must be a reason Metric is used globally, the only reason we use standard is just so we can do buisness with you.

    My entire profession is based around miles, feet, inches, gallons and pounds. And degrees Celsius.

    Well put zebra haha.
    Lots of professions are based off it, Im just saying metric aint that bad. Even NASA uses it.
    I use both for designing parts, depending on the customer.
    Sorry for making an argument ill get back to building haha.
