RIGHT! I don't like downshifts to pull a grade.
Now I'm confused again. (happens a lot! :P ) .... from your transdepot site, the 700r4 500HP rated is about $200 less than the 550HP rated 200r4 ... the crossmember mod for my car is about $160 ... probably a couple hundo for the labor to shorten the drive shaft ... where does $2500 enter???
I was looking at the 200R4 Stage 1 complete conversion kit for $1795.
This kit includes the odds and ends:
Edelbrock or Holley Linkage, TV Cable, Speedometer, Mount, Dust Cover, Dipstick & Tube, Throttle Bracket, Torque Converter Bolts, Lock Up Wiring Kit, Hayden Cooler, 2 Can Cooler Flush
I have a floor console so I need a special shifter from Shiftworks for a 4 speed console shifter $295
SHIFTWORKS -1963 and Earlier Impala
59-64 Chevy Impala Bowtie Overdrives XMXF59642 Transmission Crossmember 200R $205
Total $2,295 and then you throw in all the shipping costs and you are probably a little over $2500.00
