That sounds way over priced.

Ring around a few wreckers and get some quotes and ring tranny places and get quotes.

Sounds like he is ripping you.
I would expect a rebuild for less than 2k maybe less.

Actually those gearboxes are quite expensive.

Speak to Papa Smurf for prices for ford parts.

But ring around. I know they are not cheap at all and also to install adds a fair bit as well.


Yeah good idea.
I didnt expect them to be so expensive but who knows these days :?

i got a few quotes for my tranny last week when it was getting repaired.

baileys performance transmissions in perth.

$2500 supply (reconditioned) and refit standard 4spd.

or $3500 for a performance box. didnt say how much power it could take. but basically he said he'd rework my entire 4spd for $3500. (SUPERCHARGED EL). so if a H/D rebuilt performance tranny, fully rebuilt costs only $3500 for an electronically controlled auto. i cant see a standard manual being much more exspensive. (shoot me if im wrong)

i know its for the 4spd. but still that was through a reputuable dealer and there usually over priced.
