Transmission Rebuild TH-400

I bought a th-400 from a guy about a year and a half ago for $50. I put the trans in my garage and let it sit until I was ready for it. I brought it to work the other day and took the trans apart to see what needs to be done to it. To my surprise, everything in the trans is new. All the clutches, bands gaskets, everything. It was built stock, nothing fancy. I want to put this in my nova behind a 383 with approx 450-500 ft lbs/hp. I would like to build this trans but I don't know what to do. Should I just put it all back together and put a shift kit in it? Should I buy a new race trans overhaul kit like a hughes kit and put that in it with a shift kit? What would you suggest. What kits are the best; TCI, B&M, Hughes? Thanks!

Are you running street, street strip, or race only? 400's are tough tranny's for a street car with ocassional trips to the track, I would put it back together with a shift kit and a converter that compliments your engine combination! B+M or TCI are reliable company's. (I like TCI personally) I haven't dealt with Hughes. But, I haven't heard any complaints by people runnin' their converters!

It'll be a street/strip car.

400

I just had my 400 rebuilt with a Hughes kit and tc (2200-2500). I also put in a transgo shift kit. I love it! What an improvement-it will almost break necks when it shifts. It downshifts really well too. My only concern is breaking stuff, but what the heck, that's part of the fun. I think Hughes makes some good stuff, and I like the shift kit too (stage 2) Now for some linelocks for better burnouts.
