    I don't know how good they are but a buddy recommended them and one of the magazines went to them for a trans build-up for a new dodge diesel/turbo, worth a call.

    Gotta figure for the time it takes to mail-order one from Raptor or BowTie Overdrive, C & O will prob take two days(?) I'd ask all the questions about beef-up from them.

    I had Bowtie Overdrive rebuild mine and love it, no problems is 2 years of hard daily driver use. There really not all that far from you either.

    I actually have a low-mile Raptor 700 that I plan on selling. If you were interested in one I could definitely save you some coin. I'm going to a TTC-ready th400 to go along with a WMS 203/205 doubler. I also have one of those nifty th350-to-np205 adapters + the spacer if you wanted to put a th350-version np205 behind the Raptor... bolt on swap at that point.

    I dont know if your interested but I know of a shop nearby by my house that does really good work with the 700's. And if you need the tranny I have a perfectly good core that you can have for 20 bucks. I live in Bellflower right off the 91 and bellflower blvd.

    Yeah, I am going to have to pass on Jekbrowns Raptor (Thanks for the offer Jek) only cause I need a tranny now, Its my DD and I have been driving it in 2nd gear to and from work. Only live about 5 miles away from job.

    Hey Hey, we need to get together and go wheelin sometime. Where at in long beach do live? You dont work at the F*rd dealership do you? The shop is kind of a smaller shop but they have been there a very long time and do good work. They are on artesia in between bellflower and woodruff. Theres a smaller street called romona that splits off from artesia and theyre right on the corner. Or there is a 4 wheel drive shop north of the 91 on bellflower on the corner of park st. and they do good work too. Either one I would reccommend but the 4 wheel drive shop is a little more expensive. I have had a few trucks with 700's and I can vouch for them, not to say I havent blown up a few of there trannies either but thats not there fault when your runnin 3.73 38's a 383 and a guy who doesnt like to baby his trucks. Give me a call if you want anytime and I can give you better directions if you dont know where there at. And if you want that 700 core I have 2 of them, one came out of my blazer and the other came from a friend. Either way I want atleast one gone so my dad will get off me a bit. Cant blame hime though, his back yard can sometimes get to lookin like a junkyard.

    Nope, not the Furd dealer, I work at the Lexus dealer in the parts dept.
    Is the shop called Victory? I live on Bellflower Blvd just north of the 405. Yeah if you want to sell me a trans core for $20 i will take it that way i dont have to drop mine until i get the reman unit. Thanks
