Transmission Rebuild

Ok Im trying to decide between doing a 6spd swap or just rebuilding my transmission.

What do you think the best transmission rebuild kit is. Of course not out of this world expensive. Along with a good TC.

I would have my buddy do it. Hes pretty qualified

Since Brian doesn't sell a kit I would just order one of his trannies and swap them out, but I plan on having my truck forever. John Woods is also a good choice if you are out on the left coast. Sorry but there is a huge difference between a normal rebuild and what these guys do to the internals of a 4r100.
Some have had decent luck with kits from Suncoast, but other cuss them!!

i know a few people who have rebuilt using the the suncoast kits and have had pretty good luck with them, but NChornet is right, a BTS or a Suncoast or a JW transmission built by them is a different animal than a rebuild with a a few upgraded internals like you get in a kit......
