I'm needing a new Transmission for my El Camino wanting a 700R4 and was thinking of purchasing it from Fourth Gear Inc. in Eustis, Fl. What experience do any of you have with this company ?

Local shop in Jax, Fl swapped out a stout TH350 in my 67 327, 3:73 rear. Installed a 700r4 and 2500 lock-up converter for $1200.00. Mileage is +23 hwy., +17 city. Could not be happier:beer:

700 or 200?

Honestly its not even a fair fight. The 2004R will handle power that far exceeds that of any 700R4 or 4L60 that can be built at any price. 2004R has a better gear ratio spread, better overdrive ratio, will fit many more applications, lighter, stronger ... I can go on and on. The 700R4 is best left to applications where its the only option such as 4WD or All WD, tow vehicles, Lower HP applications or for folks that are more concerned with budget versis strength and reliability. -- http://www.extremeautomatics.com/whattransdoineed/2004rwhatlevel.html
