700R4 rebuild

I have a 700R4 transmission out of a 1986 Corvette. As I understand, the best transmissions to use were from 1987 and up (I'm talking no computer here). Being from a Corvette would this 1986 tranny be a good candidate for a rebuild to handle approx. 450 HP and 500 TQ?

cheers
Bill

the year really wont matter when building to handle that kind of power as the internals will be, should be replaced to handle the power...that year will have an aux VB which is a plus but other than that thats about all

I didn't think the aux VB came until 87 and later, I was told that the Corvette trannys were better in the earlier years than the standard passenger cars but I not sure what all was done to them in the way of upgrades. Any idea what all was done to them? I also found out that the Corvette tranny is approx 1.125" shorter than the other models. Glad I found this out as I would have had to shorten the driveshaft if I used one other than the C4 model.

cheers
Bill

Trans

Talk to whoever is doing the rebuild,vette trans are slightly different as the will stay in overdrive at wide open throttle.Also trans cases were changed over the years to correct various problems.Early 700 from 1982 and1984 were not recommended transmissions.
