    im looking for a rebuild kit that contains heavier duty parts. i was looking at the TCI Pro Super kit, which says its a rebuild kit that contains the parts of the street fighter tranny. i can get that for $220, sounds like a good price for beefy parts. i know alot of people on here have rebuilt 700's cuz they break with built rigs, and my question is what kit would you go with? what else is out there?

    What parts do they list? I suspect nothing MAJOR, like sun shell, modified clutch housings, etc?

    Typically you end up buying the "hard parts" separately to build a beefy tranny.

    This is the kit I used. It also contained their Transcat shift kit. I was pleased with the kit and quality but as Mr Yeager said, no hard parts. I was just doing a rebuild so didn't need the beefier sprags and shells etc. I did buy the Jet servos though.
    All in all, if I were doing it again I'd probebly buy a complete built performance trans. The time and money doing a stock rebuild didn't fall short of buying a complete unit.
