Well, first time I had the tranny rebuilt (yea, that'* right, done it a few times
) it was about $2200 to have mine completely rebuilt. This is not a new tranny, but the current one gutted and refitted. The second time I bought one at a junk yard (low miles) for around $400 and had a local guy install it for about $200. Both transmissions have run equally good. I did frag the rebuilt one too after 30,000 miles (hence the JY tranny). I guess manually shifting an automatic at every light while floored is a bad thing. I have sence learned my lesson.
