need 700r4 advice

Okay, I'm planning on buying a stage 3 transmission from as my next project for my truck, and for 1284.00 it almost sounds too good to be true. If anybody has any advice with these, please let me know. Also, my current 700r4 in my truck is pretty worn, and takes forever to shift. It will take a second, then "rev up" a lot, then shift into next gear. Any advice on how I can get some more life out of it will be much appreciated.

I installed a 700 R4 in my 57 Chevy PU and couldn't be happier. Good cruise on highway, decent gas mileage, and lots of get up and go. Cost $800, including salvage yard. Had it rebuilt to corvette specs, different sprag, more cluch plates etc. Kick down from painless I think, no computer. It sits behind a 396 balanced and blue printed, 10.5 compression, high rise intake, 750 holley, hotter cam, etc. Pushing maybe 425 hp, Plenty for the street. Smokes for 2 gears and can be shfted manually. Great choice.But look around for a better price. Mine came out of wrecked 92 Caprice. They are not that hard to rebuild and you only need one special tool that can be hand made. or rented or borrowed, Eastwood has a video on the complete rebuild, Since I had mine done we have done 2 for other guys in the club.

I put a 700R4 in my Camaro, from B/M through Summit.That was 1300$ before import duties, couldīnt afford one now, prices have shot up.Mine has a lower first and a higher overdrive,makes up for the 2.90 rear end.

I got a VCR to rebuild my 200R4 from

Technical Video
16325 E. Lincoln Dr.
Fall Creek, WI 57452-4813

Not too shabby! Very clear explanation of the whole process. I couldn't find a web site and I think I picked it up off one of those display racks @ the checkout line @ Auto Zone.
