    Tranny chnage ?\'s

    My 700R4 kicked the bucket. I talked to the tranny shop and they said they could upgrade it with a newer core. They put it all in and, for curiosity sake, I asked what year core they were able to get. They said 91. Didn't think anything of it at the time, until I looked underneath!! The tranny looks the same, only cleaner, but there are brackets and the transfercase looks like it has been moved!! The crossmember looks different too. There is a big brace in the middle of the tranny and transfercase that wasn't on my 83 tranny. Did they change the transfercase out on me? Is it going to be better than the 208 I had? I know the ratio is going to be better....but can it hold up better?
    Thanks people!!
