    I believe the stock pump is 19 vane so not really an upgrade there, ask a local tranny shop they will help you choose a pump. Ebay has alot of upgrades for trannys.

    7, 10, and 13 vane pumps all came stock in different years. If you have a 7 upgrade to a 10 or 13. Mine came with a 10 and that is what I used. I didn't think the upgrade to a 13 was worth it.

    I don't think 19s exist for a 700.

    Talk to a rebuild place, probably see what others have recommended for 700R4 parts on other forums.

    TYPICALLY performance pumps are modified in more ways than just the rotor/vanes (bigger boost valves, enlarged fluid pathways, etc) so it's worth shopping around IMO.

    I recommend these guys: http://www.700r4l60e.com/ they did me right with a bunch of 2004R parts awhile back, and speaking with the guy on the phone at the time, it was obvious he knew what he was talking about and not just hocking parts.

    I'd skip the 13 vane pump. When I rebuilt my 700, which was just a stock rebuild with some upgrades, I talked to several different 700 guys. The reason they went to a 13 vane pump was for more flow to control all of the solenoids and whatnot in the 4l60e's and 65e's.

    Said it would be way overkill unless you are running a transbrake or a full manual valve body in a competition rig. I spent my money elsewhere as I already had a 10 vane pump. Things like a servo, shift kit, boost valve, and an upgraded sun shell.

    thanks for the replies guys, yeah i was trying to get through this without putting to much into it... broke college student sob story... so i'm just ordering a stock rebuild kit and TC from the local parts store, but all this talk of upgrades has got me interested... like the corvette servo, the boost valve, shift kit and sun shell. what brands do yall suggest, especially on the shift kit, is b&m a decent kit?

    Stuff you get from the local supply houses is the same quality as b&m.

    Usually you can piece together a shift kit if you know what you are doing, if not, or can't get the right guidance from your local supplier/rebuilder, buy a b&m. Lots cheaper for the off brand stuff. Not alot of parts in the shift kit, and a competent shop/rebuild can duplicate a shift kit without buying a kit.

    In all, I spent about $450-500 in parts for all of the above mentioned upgrades including the rebuild kit and a rebuilt converter, minus the deep b&m pan.

    I'd suggest a TransGo shift kit over the B&M stuff, just based on my previous (now years ago) B&M experiences.

    The pump in my 700 is taking a dump....would one of the mentioned pumps above be a good replacement? Also, can you replace these without much trouble....like a pull and replace type thing or do you need special tools?

    I'm currious as to how you know the pump is taking a dump? My 700 is super slippery and probably only has another 1,000 miles or so in her (just added Lucas stop slip and it helped a ton but it's only a band aid) and was just wondering how you knew.

    I think i'm gonna go with parts from monster transmissions, pump, servo, shift kit, boost valve, and sun gear shell for $295.00 free shipping, only thing is the pump is a reman and it doesn't specify on vanes... maybe i should give them a call... any other good mods while i'm having the work done?

    The pump seal keeps leaking after several gasket changes. I've been told by several people that if the seal continues to leak that there is a bushing in the pump that has gone bad which makes the pump housing not seal up in the tranny.
