I've never installed a kit into the 4L60E; however, we put a Transgo kit into our motorhome ('73 727) and it was relatively easy. The instructions are very good. Just have a clean work surface and take your time.

Due to the Stack up in the TransGO kit for the 1-2 Accumulator adding a corvette servo will result in a extremely firm 1-2 shift, not a big deal if you dont mind it. Also Make sure you get new accumulator pistons since they wear where the center pin rides in to a egg shape and creates fluid leakage, they are very inexpensive and will increase transmission life.
