Diesel tranny question.

Hey guys,
I know that the th400 is a power robbing hog when its put behind anything. I have a cucv and am considering swapping in a 4l80e with a stand alone harness and computer, and since it will be behind the 6.2, wanted to know if the 4l80e has the same power robbing characteristics as the th400? I have also heard that in order for a 700r4 to hang around behind a built 6.2, would take quite a bit of money. I know I want an overdrive, and I figured I could go ahead and step up to a 4l80e, instead of having to buy a 700r4(which I already have) and have it rebuilt by a shop. I also think it would be easier because the fact that the 4l80e will bolt up to my transfer case without any mods. What do you guys think? Keep in mind the 700r4 I have is toast and would need a complete transformation and ALOT of work and money to make it last behind a built 6.2.

Regards,
Remington
