    Will an 04 4l80e bolt up with a 93 truck that also has the 4l80e? Will the computer not work? Any help would be great.

    one thing you might have to watch out for is make sure the speedo is either gear driven on both or electrically triggered. you can swap the two back and forth.

    Negative. Computer issues. The early to mid 90's are very picky with computer signals.

    Interesting, the trucks I've owned with the 4L80E tranny's worked great. One had 240,000 miles of hard use before needing a rebuild.
