    You might look around a little more before you settle on a monster transmission. Mine didnt even have 20000miles when the 3-4 clutches burnt out.

    I am just buying their in the box kit, the band's are of a high quality per my transmission guy. But having my transmission guy do the work. He has built over thirty transmissions for me in both personal and customers vehicles and I have only had one failure that was my fault. I tried to make an ford EOD handles 800+ horsepower on a skinny tire.
