    What would be a reasonable price to pay for a quality th400 rebuild? I want to be an educated buyer. I will remove and install myself.

    I paid 350 for mine. Of course I am on my 4th one. Lets see, original 1987 build tranny burned up a week after my 496. Rebuild for $300. Then torque converter bearing came apart, rebuild for $350(hadta replace all the tranny hardparts except case and output shaft). Then my forgetting to clean out the tranny/tcase adapter plate, put metal back into the tranny, so another rebuild, but it was just cleaning the valve body basically, but got charged $10 for new gaskets. So yeh, 4th tranny.

    Dagon yall are high... I (years ago) put a b&m shiftkit stage II in my turbo 400 plus new heavy torque converter, new clutches and bands all for a whopping $200!!!! :cool1:

    cost goes down when you do it yourself...

    p.s. the tranny was done in 1994 and when I went to manual... the owners still use that tranny and it is holding up great... used every day in a township public works... my father is a mechanic so he keeps me informed that it is in top shape :grin:
