4L80E shifter

For everyone that has a 4L80E, which style/brand shifters are preferred for this setup? I looked through what Summit had to offer and the shear number of options were quite vast.

I used my column shift because the car I had was a former police car with a 200R4 tranny. I swapped that out for a 4L80 because I took out the 305 HO motor and installed a 582 BBC in it's place.

I too used my factory column shifter on my 4l60e. Took some modifications, but works perfectly

My car had a custom floor shifter when I got it but was originally a column shift car. The column shifter has long been gone so Im just looking to see what aftermarket shifters people are using with 4L80E installs.

Two choices: cable shifter with reverse lock out as required by the NHRA to race, or mechanical linkage as the factory used. You can reinstall the tree speed shifter linkage and ignore the fact that you will never manually shift into first gear, or you can buy a complete shift kit from many vendors such as these guys:

Figured Id bring this topic back around to see if anyone else had anything to add to this. Anyone that has upgraded to the 4L80E share what floor shifter you used or which you would recommend. Thanks.
