hmmm . . .

Ok, so looks like I'll need to swap gears. I gotta say though that I've seen cars with 2.73s and a TH350 (in car mag's "reader rides") that claim mid-13s with a built 350--and can't be toooo much more than 375-400 horse out of the combos they claim. I'm fine with a 3.08 or 3.36, but I do want to take some trips with the car so I don't want to get too steep out back.

I talked to a guy at a tranny shop in town today--one with a real good reputation--and he claimed he'd need $1200 to build the 7004r to a decent level and $600 for a TH350. The price for the TH350, mind you, was for a complete performance run through, not just a rebuild. Does this sound like a reasonable ballpark?

How hard is it to do a performance rebuild on a TH350 myself? Anyone out there done it?

Thanks!
