Ok so i most likely have to get my transmission rebuilt (no sense even putting a 5 spd in) im just going to have the auto one rebuilt. Is there anyhting i can have done or do to the auto transmisison to make it perform better at all?
the lx auto tranny is a tough one to find used and in good shape. The price of a rebuild will vary from shop to shop. We had one done for 500 and another done for 925. depends on the shop. Find someone with a good reputation for standing behind the work they do. It is worth it in the long run. where are you located 95? I have a 94 gt for sale, first 1100 takes it.
well, it depends what you want to do. performance - street strip economy which? these are all things to keep in mind. No one setup is "right". yeah, a high stall converter will get you out of the hole quicker, but will kill your fuel economy. so to answer your original question, There is a lot that any performance shop can do from drilling out valve bodies to blocking accumulator springs - if you want it to shift in a snap they can make it happen. but just remember, you have to live with what you get done so make sure you want the 3500 stall converter and tire chirping shifts that don't happen until the engine sees the top side of 4000 rpm no matter how gentle you are on the gas before you tell them do it.
