Jet Performance 700R-4


Is Jet Performance a good place to buy a 700R-4 trans.
It's going in my 77 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 with my 205 transfer case, which gets alot of use. I drove 4 and 5 spds for 20 years now and think I'm do for a change. I hope its a good choice. Any information or advice would be great. Thanks,Steve

Re: Jet Performance 700R-4

Have heard very good things about Jet's 700. Well worth the money. They build it very tough. A few of the guys on here run them. I plan on getting one in the future after I build up my 350. Hope this helps.

Re: Jet Performance 700R-4

I haven't had any problems out of my JET T700 and I bought it last November ( around 15k on it so far). When I called them they seemed to know what they were doing. I think the jet transmission would probably make more of difference behind a gas motor because my K10 w/ 6.2 diesel drives 100% better than it did with the old 700[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. I can actually feel it shift. If you do buy it make sure you tell them that you pull a loaded gooseneck or the equivelent, so they will send you the bigger tranny cooler. Altough I like my JET 700, I kinda wish I had converted my K10 to a 5speed manual(NV4500[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]). If you have any specific questions just post them here.

Re: Jet Performance 700R-4

Just went to the site mentioned above and it sounds like Jet might have jipped me on the converter. They told me that with my diesel that they have had better performance and reliablity out of the non-locking converter so thats what I ordered. The only visible down side to the converter I've experienced so far has been a decrease in mileage by 1mpg. Maybe the non-locking converter is better for my application[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] but by www.700R4.com standards they don't even sell non-locking converters. Just a thought.
