dwwl i just did the 200 4r in my 1977 concours nova hatchback. read all about the two hundred on the net, built it myself works great. use one from a 86 on up because they do have some of the better parts. it was so much fun that i built a second one. If you build a 200, don't drill out the plate, just use the bilgger valves for more presure. put in the extra clutches and ilt should do you good

gearheadslife both cost about the same to rebuild to take say 350-400hp

the 700 has a very low first gear, useless with rear gears like 3.73/3.90/4.11/ unless in a truck that has tall tires.. car tires in the 26-27" tall. it becomes a very short 1st gear.. and the jump to 2nd is a biggie..

the 2004r the gear spacing is better.. better o/d gear %
the 2004r if replacing a th350(short tail) is almost a bolt in..
you have to move the crossmember back some,, but you use the th350 drive shaft..

the 700r4 will require a shortened shaft..

both require the t.v. cable and correct bracket on the intake

Jim Rockford both are kinda iffy in stock form, both need to be rebuilt with different parts to hold up to decent hp, the 86-93 700r4's are a bit better than the later 4l60e's and the stock 2004r's use stamped sheet metal drums so they are one of the biggest weak points in them, if kind of a toss up really.

I will be installing my 1st. automatic OD trans. Question is =which one is better - takes more abuse & which is lower in costs to rebuild?? 700R4 or the 200-4R---?? Any years better than others? This will be iused for a 383 chev & in a van - so towing is to be considered also.Early van that had a powerglide in it.
