Re: E4OD Rebuild
Apparently the E4OD is quite beefier than the AOD, but also supposedly either can be beefed up in the aftermarket to handle anything you can throw at it. From my part searches, I can say with confidence that the AOD was never offered behind a big block, they stayed with the C6 til the E4OD came around. That should tell you something, but that doesnt mean the AOD is any less-reliable than the E4OD, it just didnt seem big enough mathematically for big block torque at max towing capacity. In fact, I saw a rebuilder on eBay has the AOD's rebuilt for about $500, whereas an E4OD rebuild is twice that, which definitely got me thinking about swapping in an AOD... jury is still out on that though.
