Where are you located. There's two reputable rebuilders on this board. One is Mike Harris around the Cleveland area, and Cahall Performance Transmissions in the Maryland area if memory serves me correctly.

I bought one from Mike in the late fall of last year for $1,400.

You can contact Mike @:Mike Harris

Cahill's home page: CPT

Both guys were great about giving information about what they offer & recommend.

I had no bias toward either and I chose Mike because he was on the route from Central, PA to Austin, TX, when my parents finished putting my grandmother's house on the market. I had no shipping costs, so that drove to use Mike.

Put your zip in your location, so we know where you are.

I paid $1300 for a heavy duty trans plus $500 for a Circle D torque converter. I installed them myself behind a 454. Depending on how bullet proof you want it, anywhere between $750 and $4000 plus installation, or shipping.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

I paid $850 for the rebuild on my 95 Wagon. Local guy in SE Michigan. I pulled the trans and gave it to him.

I rebuilt one myself with very mild upgrades (really just a corvette servo and some others that do not require any additional parts) and the parts alone were 6-700 and I did not even replace every part that the performance builders recommend you replace every time.

Your location is also important but I think I paid about $2800.

Stock rebuild would have been cheaper but decided to do a little strengthening to avoid having the same problem down the road.

I'll refer you back to this post I did awhile back. I have NOT used them so check and be sure they offer what you want.
Not knowing where you're located I'm not sure what the shipping would be.
