    Time for a new tranny..... best option?????

    my trannys shot n wont shift past second, my mechanic said he ran a pressure test and the numbers were all over the place. so its time for a new tranny. what would be the best option. get a brand new one, totally overhaul my tranny, or get a tranny to swap out???? if i rebuild i figured it get it done with all HD parts, shift kit an all.. what do u guys think would be the best way to go to bulletproof this thing so this is the LAST time i touch the tranny

    It depends on what your goals are in the long run. Since you are gonna have too replace, Do you plan on putting in some more power? Keeping it stock? If your gonna keep it stock then a cheap way out is too just pick up a used tranny. If you plan on adding more power than i would build the tranny for that power band. Complete overhaul and rebuild with stronger parts and shift kit if you choose.
