Question B&M vs. TCI vs. Other Transmission Kits

I have a TH350 (1975) that a friend gave to me and want to rebuild it entirely, including the valve body with a shift reprogramming kit. Was wondering what the best kit out there is for a street/strip tranny around the $200 range. I know B&M has the Transkit and TCI has the Pro Super Kit but don't know much about the quality. Right know the Pro Super Kit looks more appealing because it's cheaper. Any suggestions?

you will find the quality of the shift kits is good, shift kits are another item that is made only in a couple of places and shipped out under different brands.. I once ordered a large quantity of shift kits for our shop and they all came with the wrong instructions in them they were B&M shift kits and all had fairbanks instruction sheets in them, the only difference was the front page of the instructions everything else was exactly the same from the same manufacturer, which was neither of the afore mentioned co'c.

I have always used TCI because their ad in Summit sounds like they are more complete than B&Ms. B&Ms descritions of the various versions of their kits is confusing. Probably no difference as BOBCRMAN says but since you have to choose one, I always choose TCI.
