Actually you'd be surprised. To do a full rebuild, I mean a full rebuild, every clutch, gasket, seal, sprag replaced vs a brand NEW transmission, it'* usually cheaper to replace it with a GM SRTA, which is basically a brand new trans. A brand new tranny for your car is around $2000, plus ~7 hours to install it. To overhaul your transmission is about ~16 hours labor and probably between 600 and 1000 in parts at a guess, depending how bad it is. Then with the new transmission you have a 3 year 100,000 mile warranty from GM.

In 8 years working as a GM tech, even though "I" can make more money rebuilding them, it'* a much better option for the customer to put a SRTA in and that'* what I push for. Sometimes its a few hundred more and sometimes a few hundred less depending on application. I don't think I've rebuilt one transmission customer pay in my life. They've always opted for the SRTA with the warranty.

I agree, a non-HD trans in a supercharged car = boom. Unless you BABY it. Then it will survive.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but does GM even make SRTA 4T60-E'* anymore? I'll probably take my chances with a junkyard transmission with good fluid, but if I can get a factory-remanufactured transmission, I might think twice.

I've been told that its only a difference with the diff cover and pass. side axle being as though my car has a hd trans if I get a non hd trans and take the diff off my old trans wouldn't it work and can someone tell me is there a difference with the trans in the L67 cars meaning can I use a trans out of a supercharged grand prix ,regal ,Bonneville ,park ave ,Monte Carlo ,riviera (spell check) I know that some have different final drive ratios but I was told that a 03 L67 gp trans wouldn't work because it was a different trans altogether which I really don't believe bit then again I know there are a lot of little changes here and there from year to year on these cars
