    Default Rebuilt or New Transmission

    Awhile back I posted a thread regarding replacing my 4+3 with a 6 speed. Got some great guidance but now, as I begin to crunch the numbers and doing my online research, I see that a rebuilt 6 speed with a great warranty is almost 1100.00 less than new. Is there going to be much of a major difference if I go with the rebuilt? With both products having a warranty, I could allocate the savings into the installation. Any suggestions?

    Hey johnny, I'm thinking of doing the same thing. What 6 speed are you looking at?

    there are a couple of places that have rebuilts..one in Calif and the other in Carolina. On my work computer I have the websites saved. I think that is the route I am going to go. On a military members budget, I need to save as much as possible. I have put a lot into my vette already, with new paint. new rims ( original 17 inch 12 slot ) ECM, brake work. I love it too much to get rid of her. I will be going back to Iraq in FEB and will be able to save quite a bit with the tax free benefit. Just wish I could get her fixed now, but good things come to those who wait. The hardest thing I have to research is who will do the work. I have a repair shop here locally, Corvettes of Auburn but I am afraid the labor alone will cost as much as the tranny. I am not mechanically inclined. I have to trust them. They have been great to me.

    Hey Johnny, Thanks for the link info. I had an 81 when I was in the Corps and had to do one mod per month. Now I'm a 41 yr old full time graduate student and back to the same schedule. I understand the budget issues.
    Thanks for your willingness to serve. Just remember, it is not the US military's place to judge the terrorists, it's God's. Our job is to arrange the meeting.
