Question

I want a good trans that can bark 2nd gear, my choices are the ones listed in the subject,

the 700R4 for the Overdrive
the 2004R because it is the same length as my current PowerGlide.

and the TH350 for the same reason , and shift kits are cool in these things. but I always break Sprag Gears, what do you suggest.

I dont want to cut my drive shaft.

I've got a '68 that I swapped a TH350 into in place of the PG tranny. I got it from Summit, the TCI brand one. It has a firm shift and has worked great for me for the past three years.

Chris,

Too bad you live so far away. I have a perfect TH350 sitting in my garage waiting for a new home.

Before deciding on a Tremec I was really close to going with an overdrive automatic. The 200-4R IMO was the best choice. It slips in with no driveshaft mods, a TH400 x-member, has better 1-2 gear spacing, and can be made strong enough to handle turbo Buicks. Once you go overdrive you will never go back.

WE4 is the man when it comes to these.

Good luck

I like the 200-4r because it will bolt to
most GM V-8's, has overdrive, is light weight
, parts are plentiful and people think they are so worhtless that they GIVE them to me!!!

If you stay with a th350 use a hardened sprague then you should be alright.

Thumbs up

[The 700-R4 and the 200-R4 are lighter than the 350-turbo,these trannies can be made to shift real hard!,but if you don't want to cut a driveshaft you need to go with the 200-R4!{any one of these can be made to jar your teeth when they shift.
