Re: TH350 Rebuild Time
The turbo 350 is the cheapest tranny to rebuild!!! that price is WAY TOO HIGH !!!
It shouldn't cost more than around $250. I would stick with the T350, but find a different shop. Also since you are doing the tranny now, I would suggest you get a heavy duty torque converter($100), and while they are rebuilding it, now would be the best time to put a shift kit in it($60), and a cast aluminum pan with a drain plug, cooling fins, 2 qts more fluid($100). And if your truck does not already have one? put the biggest tranny cooler on that will fit($60). If you do this stuff you still should be well under $1000 even if you have the shop R&R it for you. But with these modifications, this should be the last tranny you will ever need. (heat kills trannys)
