You could get 4L80 for it or spend some real money and get one from B&M transmissions

The 4l60e you have will handle 360 ftlbs torque..if that's not enough for whatever engine you have then t'shoes has a good one, rated 800 ft lbs torque but is designed for trucks and the Hummer (NOT saying t'shoes is wrong, the dude knows his shit) or for less money a 4l65e will take 380 ft lbs. But must add the Judge has a point: You really need a 'stronger' one? Well, it's your money to spend as you so desire

You're a youngster...you love the manual transmission...you have not spent HOURS in LA traffic....eventually you'll want an automatic....it just happens with us olde folx~

his 4l60e IS an automatic. you might be able to put a built turbo 350 or turbo 400 trans in it. best place to get a definitive answer and not be judged for doing what you want with your own car is to look for a Camaro forum and search there.
