Try Ford, Try junkyards you could possibly find one with few miles that would fit right in. Try the VMF for sale site. Transmissions are delicate though and I wouldn't attempt to rebuild one myself

If you take the tranny out and take it for a rebuild it will be around $600. If you do it yourself a kit is from $100 -$170 but I have never performed this myself.

WOW! $1300!!! Really? I'm sorry, I'm just totally floored. If this is really the price of tranny re-builds in the bay area, I think I'm going to quit my job and open a shop down there /forums/images/icons/cool.gif.

I had my tranny rebuilt with a stage one shift kit for $450. This included a new (yes, new, not rebuilt) torque-converter and a $50 core charge (bought the tranny from them, as I didn't have one).

Now this was with me carrying it in, and carrying it out (R&R of the tranny was my responsibility) and it was in Sacramento, not the Bay Area.

Yeah I agree with Johnpro 1300 Is way Too Much!!!!!! I had a C4 tranny rebuilt Down here in FLA for 600 bucks and the guy said it would handle 700 horsepower. Of course I had no where near 700 so that may be a joke. I also carried it in and picked it up.....
