Normally when you get a tranny "rebuilt" That's talking the internals like clutches,bands,Stub shafts etc.oh, 80k...
but hold on hold on, is getting it rebuilt the same as a shift kit? or is it a completely different thing where i would have to rebuild, add shift kit, converter and tune?
Any brand or model suggestions?
Silly Dude, J-Mods are for kids.I didnt think there was a "real" shift kit for the 4r70w...thought the most done for the 99-03 (done from factory in 04) was to do the j-mod. Then set the shift firmness through a tune.
When i went auto i sold my Tremec T-45 for $350 and Gave the guy a stock shifter the steeda clutch cable, steeda quadrant,5 speed pedals,5 speed boot,shifter ball,and drive shaft for $50,So for $400 this guy got Everything he needed to go 5 Speed,Not including a Flywheel or Clutch but they can be had for a Reasonable price.So it can be done for under $900 if you shop for the parts and take your time looking for the stuff.Not to thread jack so PM me if neccessary, but I have an auto and have been unsatisfied from purchase on because id love to shift on my own and get that extra mpg or 2.
How did you manage a swap for 900? did you do the work yourself? whats involved. I can get a tranny and the equipment/ parts, but what all work is there to be done to make the swap?
