I am reasonably sure a 4L30e TCM cannot properly control a AW30-80LE.
The AW30-80LE was used with the 2.6L 4cyl, I don't know if it will bolt up to the V6 engine.
I do not recall anyone in the the forum in last 10 years replacing a 4L30e with a AW30-80LE
One member installed a AW30-40LE from a 04 Rodeo in 3.5L Trooper.

The AW30-40LS used with 2004 Axiom and 2004 Rodeo with the 3.5L GDI engine is good for about 500hp and should bolt right up to the 2.8 engine because it has the same bell housing configuration as a 4L30e. However, the 2004 Axiom and Rodeo TCM uses a CANBUS interface to get engine data so it is not plug and play installation.

The AW30-40LS is a heavy duty version of the AW30-40LE. The 2003 Axiom and Rodeo have a AW30-40LE installed and also use a CANBUS TCM. Interestingly, in Toyota world the AW30-40LE is called the A340E and there are aftermarket transmission controllers for A340 series transmissions.
There is topic in forum on installing a AW30-40LE in a Trooper.
