Mainly for Corey but anyone else that has input....

Would it be cheaper to buy a interceptor transmission like you have corey or rebuild the current one in my car with beefier parts?

What stall is your convertor? What are the parts that I will need to replace? I think the 4R70W has a taller first gear than the AODE correct?

My auto will be my weakest link when i put the motor in and will be looking at beefing that up next.

Personally I went to a local trans shop and had them beef up my current AOD I know its not the same as your trans but I feel that a good local shop can do the deal cheaper then buying a whole new trans. I know for me it was cost efficient

Thats unless you find a killer deal on one. then Id jump on that ship quick fast

1800 dollars is a far cry from 4000.

I am not talking rebuilding it for 1000 hp 400-500 should be plenty with a 3k stall convertor

i made pretty good money there
but seriously if you get a ****ed up tranny to rebuild at an actual shop it will cost you about 1700. they say your aod is built for seven hundered horsepower but may i ask which parts, im sure that they didnt touch the drums. what did they change, yeah they might have put some bands for that money a nice shift kit and a torqueconverter. but what about your planetary gear set. actuallty i think the aod uses raveneaux gear set. but im sure not every part in that tranny is built for that power.

if you say every piece possible has been replaced to cover 700 horsepower then for 1300 they didnt charge you labor and they lost money on parts.

It comes with a special pressure solenoid, which has higher pressure than the stock solenoid and a performance pressure regulator spring. This is the main cause of clutch failure in the AODE / 4R70W transmission. The roller clutch is removed and replaced with a heavy-duty mechanical diode with Spiral "Plus" Ring Kit. This is the weak point on the 1992-1998 AODE / 4R70W transmissions and needs to be replaced for any high performance / heavy duty use. Two extra clutches are added to the direct clutch drum, that gives 33% more holding power (Alto Red Eagle). This transmission has a high performance Fairbanks TransAction Kit and an oversize overdrive servo. The stock overdrive band is replaced with a Raybestos Pro Series Kevlar band. A new heavy-duty torque converter is included in this package deal. It has a larger than stock Luk clutch lining that is far better than the stock converter (#13). Can be ordered with stall speeds up to 2500 RPM for an extra $89.00. This transmission takes care of all the weak points in the stock AODE / 4R70W transmissions and is a must for high performance Mustangs. We install this transmission in all of our local police cars. Good for motors up to 550 horse power using pump gasoline, see chart below. Add torque converter and hard shaft upgrades if needed.

This transmission can be shipped to you anywhere for $1899.00 without a trade-in. The freight runs $100.00 to $150.00 in mos

Why not? Sounds like about the same price considering the one I listed is 1900 without a tradein meaning they paid for the tranny and then rebuilt it.....

the bands and clutches might have been beefed up but as far as the raveneaux gear set im sure it was not touched. they gave him a shift kit. i also bet the input and output shaft were not touched

how confident are you on that. Believe me when I tell you EVERY single piece was replaced. My trans didnt get magically put together in a day Ill tell you that much

It also helps that I deliver parts to them everyday. But still dont be mad cause I actually got a deal on something that seems that your peoples on that end of the country like ripping people off :yup:

BTW the trans shop that built mine builds racing trans all th etime and have anem for themselves so why would a shop I deliver to and has a rep in the area just lie about what they are giving me Hater

Actually I paid 1300 installed for my interceptor because my Tranny guy bought the Interceptor wholesale and installed it. I also think they are more expensive now because I had mine installed in 02 or early 03

Actually the Interceptor tranny can be had in kit form. It is very easy for a tranny shop to upgrade a auto for high HP

i worked for a professional shop, we were not just a bunch of shade tree mechanics like might have been the ones you went to, if you got it that cheap. and i still dont think EVERY part was replaced and installed for 1300 bucks.

Actually Steve I will disagree with you on this one. A complete rebuild performance kit with intermediate shaft and Torque converter can be bought for around $1,000

shift kits extend the life do to lack of heat. factory would install this but grandma and grandpa would not like there head thrown back on shifts, and although tranny coolers are nice and very much worth the money you are still getting way more heat on the tranny than it need and much much more than stock.heat from a trq conv. that is slipping (stall) is not going to be cooled at 1st gear launch it will be cooled after the launch and at a quicker pace with a cooler, but none the less after the launch

I didnt buy the parts I told the trans shop what exactly I wanted to get accomplished I told them straight up what I wanted out of this trans. They then in return told me they will replace all the parts to the trans to hold 700 hp like I wanted cause I dont plan on going any further then that in this car.,

They told me straight up 1300 out the door as long as I didnt mind them basically taking their time on it. So whether not U believe it thats what I got. And again like I said before this place isnt some regular ol shop its a place that has a great rep for building trans for alot of drag strip cars.

Just take it as all places dont go charging an arm and leg to all people.
