    Is there a difference between a 84 and a 88 700r4?
    Which is a better tranny?
    Will a np208 bolt up where a np241 once went?

    Thanx for your input /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I believe some of the older ones 84 or 85 and older had some problems IIRC other than that I believe they are the same. Yeah I am pretty sure the 208 and 241 are the same.

    the 88-91 years were suppose to have some improvements made to them from chevrolet. I can't remember what was done to it to make it more desirable though.

    Stock to stock, the 88 will be much more durable.

    Throughout the years, things changed such as input shaft diameter/spline, auxilary valve bodies, better servo's etc. If you have a choice the newer/later tranny will generally be better/stronger (assuming stock vs. stock). Also if a rebuild is needed, use the newer one. Stay away from the 82 and 83 models (and some early 84's) as they are considered the worst of the worst and some upgrades cannot be performed on them.
