Transmission advice

The tranny in my 87 is ruined. Like the inside is all broken. Oceanside transmission will charge me 1700 for a rebuilt t5 rated up to 500hp. I don't know if I should do that or what..please help. Thanks

You could get a WC t5 from Jegs for less than that, what all is done to your car?

Honestly, I've seen some 4cyl t5s handle a beating pretty good with a mildly built motor. Buddy of mine actually still has his factory t5 behind his 347 stroker that's been beat on an still going strong. But here is a link to the trans I was talking about but ultimately it's up to you.

Also a rebuild kit for the. T5 isn't too expensive if you know someone that's can rebuild tranny's for a decent price.

keep in mind: if something is actually broken like gears shafts etc, the rebuild kit will not supply that stuff.

That is true, never even thought about that.
