One thing I was talking to the foreman about though is the possibility of putting the Hybrid 3s 8HP70H in a normal 3 and replacing the hybrid unit with a torque converter. We know that trans bolts to the N55, so it may be something worth exploring.
I was telling you it wasn't the same transmission just same model name, and didn't really share much asides from the shifter. The transmission may not bolt up as shafts lengths are different and software is different, the only similarities are the mating surface and shifter.
