The 4L60e valve body physically conflicts with the LT230. The 4L80e would require a long adapter to fit. You would need weld-in mounts for the 4L80e. I don't think there would be a way to make a...

That would probably be too much for the 4HP24 with the supercharger. A naturally aspirated LS1 would probably be okay. Some of our current beta testers have done full engine rebuilds with cam swaps...

That is correct. We're trying to keep the base kit price around $1,500-$1,700. I'll have a better idea when we get some feedback.
