  • 4T65E and 4T65E HD (99+) N-Body Swap

    So you have significantly modded your engine and now your transmission seems to be the weak link of your build. You have a few options to upgrade the stock 4T45E transmission which can be rather costly, or you can swap to the stronger 4T65E series transmission which seems to be uncharted territory for many. The purpose of this article is to provide a little more insight on what it will take to swap a 4T65E transmission into your 99+ N-body.


    Major Items Required:
    • 4T65E or 4T65E HD Transmission
    • Mounts (purchased or custom fabricated)
    • Torque Convertor (99-05 Grand Am GT)
    • Transmission dipstick Tube & Indicator (95+ Grand Prix)
    • Inspection Cover (95+ Grand Prix)
    • Gear Selector Lever (95+ Grand Prix)
    • Nose Cone Bracket (95+ Grand Prix)
    • Trans Cooler Lines (95+ Grand Prix)
    • Axles Pieces Sourced from Various Vehicles
    • Tuning Package (to reprogram PCM)


    Important Considerations When Picking your Transmission:
    • When picking your transmission you should look for a 98-02 transmission (See Appendix I).
    • The 4T65E transmission is more common and can be found with 3.29 drive ratio, which is preferred for this swap as it matches the stock gear ratio on the 99+ Grand Am GT model. This will be most likely the most affordable route and if desired the HD differential can be added.
    • The 4T65E HD transmissions can be somewhat harder to find and were only available with a 2.97 drive ratio. On the concept cars, GM engineers swapped out the internal input/ output gears 37/33 tooth for 35/35 tooth units. This change will raise the 4T65 HD 2.97 ratio to 3.29.

      The following pages contain information on specific transmission models from the 4T60, 4T60E and 4T65 family(4T40/4T45 and 4T80 information may be in the works, stay tuned). For now, it is NOT an all-inclusive list, but any missing information would be appreciated. Miscellania: 4T60E Differentials with an asterisk are "fine pitch" final drives. Sun gears, internal ring gears, and pinion gears are NOT interchangeable with other final drives. 4T65E with "IMS" have the newer type of s...

      INTRO This is a guide on how to service your transverse automatic transmission without a lift. All work is done with the vehicle on jack stands. Once the cover is removed the valve body is left attached to the channel plate. This assembly can then be moved to a workbench for easier servicing if valve body work is in your plans. In any case the transmission drive chain, pump, 4th gear assembly and many other parts can be repaired or upgraded at this time. In the description below the term "c...
