Suprisingly, I've been receiving a fairly steady stream of status inquires since I killed my transmission in July/August (after the FMIC install).
So, for those who were concerned, (as well as for future researchers of S80 transmission threads) I figured that I'd post an update.
But, since this IS an S80T6 I am talking about - I'd better take a few precautions:
Ok, that's better.
Now, on to the update...
I finally got around to having the transmission pulled. It'll be dropped off on Tuedsay for a complete overhaul consisting of a high performance street/strip rebuild (clutches/bands,valve body, shift kit, etc...), upgrading the input shaft to a stronger unit, upgrading the chain to a 7/8 single chain, and (drum roll please ...)
Changing the stock convertor's stall speed to approx 3K.
The transmission rebuild is being done by this guy:
Expected turn around is about 2 weeks due to the custom convertor work
I've asked him to provide a post mortem analysis so others can benefit from my transmission's death.
That is all.
