Well, I just talked to Level 10 again and they say shipping will be $600 for the tranny
+ I will have to pay $600 to ship my core to them only to get a $600 deposit back, so now my tranny would cost $3500
So anyway, I said screw that, I ordered their rebuild kit which includes every single upgraded item that the built tranny has including Reybestos blue plated clutches, and seals, bearings, etc. for $480 shipped
and also called Performance Automatic and they are going to send me their valve body with trans break
HELL YEAH!!!!! I just saved a hell of a lot of money, and my mechanic just said he was going to charge $200 for the tranny swap, but with the kit and VB
he said he will only charge me $400!!!!! So basically I'm getting a bulletproof tranny for $1300 + $70 in synthetic Redline oil, not bad at all if I might say so myself. I was prepared to pay Level 10 $2300 + a $600 core charge which I wasn't going to send back for about 6 months, and $600 for shipping it to me, and $600 to send it back!!!!!!!! and thats not including my PA valve body I was about to order
Oh by the way PA offers to trans break Valve bodies:
1. one that overides the whole computer and has to be manually
shifted all the time.
2. the one I got, that retains all automatic qualities, and all you
have to do is put the trans into low gear, engage the trans
break, and throw it into drive real quick.
BOth are for $447. There is also a VB
without trans break for $300, screw that, I would have regretted not having a trans break for the strip when I have slicks
