Turbo 400 rebuild kits

Does anyone have a suggestion on a rebuild kit for the turbo 400? I have the tranny out and planning to tackle this rebuild in the next few weeks and doing some research at the moment. The tranny is slipping bad and I pretty much cant even drive it anymore. Illl have to rev, let off the gas, rev, let off the gas, and then it'll go into gear.

I've seen various rebuild kits from recommendations here and from ebay as well and not sure where to start. There's a master kit and a full blow "Superkit" from trans exchange and the price is significantly MUCH different between the two. If I have the tranny out, should I pretty much replace everything and go with a superkit from transmission exchange or is that overkill?

Im also going to go with a shift kit from transgo... anythoughts? much appreciated

If it slips that badly I would advise the superkit, and you will probably need some new hard parts too, like the front pump or some of the thick clutch drum pressure plates that don't come in a kit. You may have to get friendly with the local trans rebuilders for some of these non-replacement type hard parts they have saved from other toasted tranny's.

Worst thing you did was drive it until it slips that bad, it tears up more than the simple rebuild parts. At this point I wouldn't try to do a weekend rebuild and re-install as you won't know how bad things are until you get it apart. Plan on it being a week at least to track down replacements for the non- service parts that may have been hurt.
