    well a couple days of go I smoked my tranny its about time . the thing held up great with the problems it has had. it would slip every once in a while the front pump will hardly pump any fluid anymore the torque convert was shot and the valve body was hanging on. I am planning on getting it rebuilt and was wondering what is or what was the best upgrade you can do to a th350 because Its a great tranny and it winds up a hellof a lot quicker then a 400. so lets here some cool tranny upgrades or Ideas.

    I'd say build it up using high quality bands and clutches installing a good shift kit. Like the transgo etc. Also add a tranny cooler too. Then you should be on your way.
