what to do about trans..

i am tired of freakin 4r100... i have literally been exhausted of all faith that they are good transmissions. circumstance regarded.

so may question is this: WHAT TO DO???

i want a built transmission, but i dont know who has the best.

should i go with a new one, or should i have mine built at the cost of parts and labor?

please chime in guys.

BTS if you have $4100 or so to spend not counting shipping. If not get yours rebuilt. Good rebuilt should cost you between $2100 and $2600 or so. Ask around and find out who the local sled pullers and drag racers use. Good luck.

A "stout" rebuild is all you need. Get yourself a deep pan, JWVB, billet shafts, trip disc converter.

Don't mean to Hi-Jack..................

Raul? Can you list the parts you think a "built" tranny should include? There are a lot of us that would really like to know where to put the money. Thanks!
