    Can anyone give me a ballpark figure to expect on paying to get a new one put in at a shop?

    YOU CAN USE A 4L60E CONV. IN THE 700R4 I WAS TOLD IT WAS BUILT A LITTLE BETTER. ALSO HAS THE FINS WELDED. THIS IS WHAT I RAN IN MY OLD 700R4.

    If you want it to last longer, make sure to get one with Torrington bearings instead of the bushings for the internals. They last longer and keep converter slop to a minimum which (excessive slop) can cause problems under load. There a little more expensive, but that's all my tranny builder will use.
