auto tranny questions

need to know what range converters are in this tranny in truck applications,

after such a short time the trans is decideing its not going to last me long, ive looked into rebuilding it and relized its not something i want to do.

not when i can get one for 1000-1400. also found out the tranny in the truck is a 700r4 not the 4l6e. im not real positive if the 700r4 is the tranny to have. looking over the net i have seen that theres a ton of after market companies pumpin out the 700r4 designed to go behind radical motors..

heres what im looking at right now, im just lookin. its the stage 2 trans. yeaH I LIKE THE BLUE.

heres the link.

if i was to get this tranny acording to the company it would work behind big block and about any kind of small block i might ever build.

but i dont have any clue as to what tourque converter id stick in it.

thats were you all come in.

thanks
Evan

also thought about doing a revers manul valve body that would make the shift pattern, prn1234, instead of prn4321. this also makes it so i have to shift between each gear. then id also want a taller floor shifter to do this. the column shifters are so cheezy feeling to me. real loose and sloppy

Re: auto tranny questions

Thaaaat must be what I saw at the car show this year. I saw a lot of cars with floor shift automatics, the knob said:

P
R
N
(D)
3
2
1

Some with the (D), and some without. I didn't get out a tape measure, but some were freakin' long, I'd guess longer than the 15" one that's advertised.

About the torque convertor, I barely understand how one works let alone know what the rpm differences have to do with. That bowtie overdrive site has 1,600rpm, 1,800rpm, and 2,200rpm in the heavy duty versions; were those the ones you were considering?

Re: auto tranny questions

Seen alot of bad stuff about bowtie overdrives on ck5 with there 700r4's. I'd either get yours rebuilt by a quality local shop or buy a new one from B&M or Jet.

Personally, I would get a 4l80e off ebay or someplace else, and swap that in with a Jet computer to run it. A used 4l80e and the computer will be less than the $1400 your looking to spend and will be a much better transmission.

Re: auto tranny questions

It was my understanding that Jet no longer makes trannys. I have been looking at a TCI tranny from Summit. Orginally i was going to get a Jet, but they said they no longer carried them.
