    I got my 5-speed from Luchetti Auto.

    Rebuilt freight included guaranteed 12 months unlimited mileage freight
    included_ contact ron at 800 324 8960

    This is where I got my tranny from after I went through two or three others. I am pretty sure the price was 800 bucks out to your door. Everything went well and it was shipped out on time. The tranny has held up to my abuse and is still running fine in the car. I would recomend this tranny to anyone.

    I would pull the tranny myself and then take it to get rebuilded. Most of the charge will be the labor to remove and reinstall the tranny. You can save BIG money doing it that way.

    Removing the tranny is about 300 dollars worth of that price. I have had mine taken out 3 times and each time it has been about 300 dollars for removal. Book time lists 5 to 6 hours for the removal.

    AOD or 5 speed ? If AOD I know where you can get a recently rebuilt one (new converter also) for a couple hundred plus shipping.

    Its an AOD and a newer trans or newly rebuilt one would be better i think. is there somewhere i could get a remanufactured trans for cheeper.

    i found on ebay some remanufactured trannies for 495 and 110 shipping. is this a good deal. im kinda leaning towards new or fresh rebuilds. is there another trans that will fit other than an AOD that is better.

    I paid a shop 1200 to rebuild my tranny because I didnít have time to do it myself. It hasnít worked right since. Until the car gets up to running temp, it wonít shift out of first until 4000-5000 rpm.

    I brought it back to them 7 or 8 times. RUNAROUND

    If you do have it rebuilt, have it done by someone your really trust!

    I plan to rebuild mine again when I get some time.
