200r4 transmission, New/rebuilt? used?

I'm wondering the best way to go for my tranny.I see Art Car from calif& Trans Depot out of Fla.Anyone deal with either company? Used trans I see are going from 500.00 to 1500.00 .At that price I figure getting one all rebuilt /new would be the better way.Let me know what you think.

I got my 200R from Bow Tie overdrives in CA

They do things correctly, are really helpful and know how the TV cable system works. Check out their website.

It is has worked behind my 383 SBC that produces 470# of torque and pushes
my heavy Jaguar well...

If you decide you want a good one there are several places I would look into. Much depends on your location. Jimmy's in Chicago, Janis in Akron, Ohio, ck in New York, Jake's in Sanger, Texas , Mike Kurtz's Century Automotive in Richmond, Texas or Extreme Automatics in NC

There are others but I wouldn't trust mine to your local trans shop that claims they can build one unless you are wanting to have it built multiple times.

The 2004r is an excellent transmission but when assembled sloppily doesn't last long.

I will agree, buy rebuilt, not used. Know your builder and your builder knows you, and what your going to do with it. H e should be told about how, what your putting it into and what your expecting. DON'T be shy and tell him what you expect. Rebuilt mine and I love the 200 4r, and so will you if you have it done right.
