Im going to start in my rebuild of my th350. It is a 1975 unit out of a malibu, with about 100000 on it. I haven't torn it apart yet, but their is minimal sludge in it. What is a good kit to rebuild my trans? Im looking at hughes or B&M Transkit, maybe TCI, but most of those I dont think come with bushings and are expensive...Do I need Bushings and Steels? The Trans will go behind a SBC producing no more than 400ft.lbs. With that, would I need to do any internal Mods like 36 element sprag or hardened race? Also I would really like to do the rebuild for no more than $200 including a shift kit, speaking of shift kits, what are good ones? I want to make it a Manual/Auto trans. It will be raced occasionally on weekend and be used with a 2500 stall(external cooler will be used).
Would these be good kits? which one?:
Im thinking the last one...steels, bushings, red eagle clutches for $160 and get shift kit for $50 or so.
What do ya think?
