That'* about the same quotes I got. I found a place that did it factory reman and installed with a full warranty for $1900. But that'* about the same price you have there.

This is why I question modding my car. I mean how much power can these trannys take? Willwren is */C'd so he even has an HD transaxle, I do not. I think 250 ftlb. of torque would probably be the most mine can take.

It'* hard to say. Mine is a '93 */C'd and the tranny made 197,000 miles before it went.

Just accept the fact that the tranny will die someday and save away for it

you must have stubbed alot of toes and ruined alot of cell phones...

About the tranny, its gotta die sometime, mine has made it to 162k and its starting to show its age. Its more of a luck thing than anything else.

This one is going by the book. I've got a good scantool, the factory service manuals, and a personal tranny expert (jr's3800 ). I should know more by the end of the weekend.
