So I was at Home Depot yesterday and saw a guy with a V8 Colorado so naturally I had to go shoot the shit with him since its very rare I see another V8. So we started talking he told me he had had his transmission go out on him twice, both times were covered under warranty, first time was a rebuild and the second time they put in a brand new one. Why do I bring this up? Because I have had my transmission go out on my V8 Colorado too and I have about 20,000 on my rebuilt transmission. Have you guys had any problems with your transmissions? His truck was a 2012 and mine is a 2009. I'm getting ready to throw a supercharger on my truck, and in addition I'm installing a efan and transmission cooler. I'm a little worried about the stock transmission now to tell you the truth though.

1st Transmission failure blamed on servos. 2nd transmission (rebuilt failed 2hrs after pick-up, it baked itself to death). 3rd transmission good.

Haven't had any transmission problems. "v8chevycolorado.com"- That brings back memories. It just suddenly disappeared.

Mine is slipping at 5000rpm at WOT. 24k miles, but I'm sure the turbo is to blame lol!

Superior servos at 40k, now at 92k. Had trans serviced at time of servo install. No new problems. Gotten used to trans seemingly slipping when making a sharp turn and attempting to gas it, just revs then slams hard. Even after a tune I have never been able to spin the tires, just hooks and goes.

sorry but your better off getting a 4l80e and a shift kit and be done there is a reason when you go to build 60e that just about every thing gets replaced with better parts and it still dont last been there done that
