    I'm looking at ordering a T400 tranny from TCI and was wondering what you guys have heard about them. Also do you think it is worth an additional $400 to go with lower primary geraset, giving a 2.75 first gear.

    Don't know about the th400 but I put a TCI tranny in my 'cuda a while back (before I sold it :doah: :( )

    The motor in that thing was wicked. I destroyed 3 tannys (including the original) in 1 year. After the TCI tranny I had no problems for the remainder of my ownership, about 3 years, and I drove that thing HARD!!! :D

    Good to know. I've been having problems finding a good tranny builder, so I'm going to bite the bullet and order a TCI T400. I wish I would have done that in the first place. Do you think the lower gearset is worth the extra coin. To go from a 2.5 first gear to 2.75 first gear is going to cost me an extra $450. :doah:

    I would say it depends on the rest of your set up. Gears, Tires, motor ect.

    I had a TH350 rebuilt using all TCI components and had no probs. The torque converter was a nightmare. First the supplied bolts wouldnt screw into the T/C. So after I went n got new bolts I found out one of the bolt holes in the T/C was screwed up so I had to take the T/C to a machine shop and get it heli coiled.

    If you spend alot of time lugging around at low RPM I would say go for the 2.75's. If you mostly spend time in mid to high RPM save the coin.

    Just my thoughts.
