jakeshoe That's a good kit and the price is pretty decent actually.

Keep in mind some places don't give ANY tech info with their kits. TCI, Bulkpart, etc aren't selling youa kit and then answering your questions when you build it and don't know why they sent you a certain part or how to reconfigure the 3-4 clutch pack, or what clearances to set it at, etc.

You'll spend at least that much putting together the same parts from Bulkpart as you would from Dana (website in first post) or me, and you don't get any tech.

Dana's kits and tech are excellent.

SSedan64 Looks like a very complete kit. May be a little overkill & pricey tho'. I'd shop around some more. I'm not sure what tools are absolutely neccesary for the 700R4/4l60 trans. TCI doesn't have the best reputation.

forgot to mention what Im running

I have a 350 4-bolt main. I just rebuilt the top-end with the Edelbrock Performer RPM kit. 750cfm edl. carbl. I believe i have flat top pistons. My bottem end is stock, will up grade it in the sping. ( is the Eagle bottem end the best) I really dont know how much HP im putting out. Hopefully around the 400's... I have a heavy truck weights 5600..

tnsmith10 what i personally would do depending on how much power you putting out, would be 1st check the current reverse input drum and make sure its absolutely flat, if so, i wouldnt worry about the drum.
other than that, id get the dual cage sprag, the z-pack 3-4 clutches, (personal preference after learning a few things from the old man), and depending on if ur going to be running the engine above 5500 WOT the hardened steel rings for 5500 and above, and finally the trans-go separator plate (just to be safe unless you already know that the separator plate in the trans is ok).
the choice of conveter is up to you with the consideration of what youve done to the engine, if its basically stock, then a good rebuilt aftermarket converter from anywhere like WITtrans or a hughes, or as you mentioned should be fine for street use.
only thing i noticed otherwise is the application your putting it in.. that too is important... 1 other thing i might suggest is to go with a corvette servo if you dont already have 1... and get the atsg manual to help you along the way...
these transmissions have a common 2-3 flair issue after rebuild, but if you follow everything closely, you should be ok... best of luck on your first 700R4 rebuild... there a good trans.

p.s. dont forget to add "the beast" sun shell if this kit dont come with it. another weak link in the 700R4...
and im sure there other things others will mention that i didnt, but then again, id say its going to depend on how much you want to spend... lol
