    Whats the difference between a 350 Turbo Trans and a 700R4 Trans?
    I know about the Modulator thing but which is better to have for a K/5 blazer.
    There's one in the classifieds for $125.00 compared to 350 Turbo Trans for $500.00

    The 700 is a 4 speed trans vs the 3 speed th350. The 350 is a pretty sturdy trans, and the 700 has problems with burning out the OD bands. Im running a 700r4 and like it, but you need to take some precautions to extend its life.

    Cool!
    Thanks for the reply, I read in other post about the 700r4 that its a little bigger than a 350 trans, I think I'll stick to the 350.
    Thank you Outlaw..
