as many of you know the trans am is broken and i have a new car to drive around. before the trans am broke i planned on saving up all summer and buying my new car at the end of summer but the plan changed obviously.

so on to the issue at hand. by the end of summer i'll have about 5-6K saved up. the question is, should i go ahead and fix the trans am or pay off the focus early?

another question is how much would i be expecting to pay for a th400 swap?

You now have a daily driver. The T/A is paid off and you won't get jack if you sell a dead car.

You need to fix it anyway. Once it's fixed you won't want to sell it. You'll then have a daily driver and a "weekend toy." :drive:

Forget th-400 -- think T56.

the TH-400 isnt that bad to do on those cars... I can always give you the number to my uncle's tranny shop in Augusta, GA. They specialize in automatics. They built the TH350 in my old camaro very cheap.

Fix the TA. If it's just the trans it will not cost 5-6k to fix. You will still have some of that left you could put towards the focus.

th400 swap is cheap...i have a setup for sale. 4l80 is the best of both.....tough and overdrive...not as cheap though.

i wouldnt wanna be seen in a boosted focus, muscle car guys give a way different impression than import guys, and for me to go by an import and frown at it and then find my self tryin to be one of them would just be too wierd...... fix your trans.

There isn't one, because that would be just about the most colossal waste of money I can think of on anything auto related. :jest:

Yeh i dont understand why you have so many problems with trannys, your under 400rwhp right? what is breaking in the trans? Have you tried a bigger trans cooler? what stall and what gears do you have? Stall might be too much for your gears and over heating the fluid????

i made ith the torque converter unlocked 333/430. i put a larger trans cooler in after the 2nd time it broke before the FLP trans. the stall is a 3000 so i dont think its too much for the gears, which im not sure what gears they are. i was told the gears were 3.73s.

i really dont believe what the guy who i bought it from though. he neglected to tell me that nitrous had been used on the car which is why the engine was fucked up.

My ex room-mate had a boosted focus.. went through multiple motors/transmission to run 14.1 @ 101, iirc.

Weird....... I wouldnt ditch the overdrive save a get the 80. Th400 will be insane with 3.73s at 75mph.

im not sure what gears they are.
Look at what cruising rpm you are at in a certain gear and then visit this page.

www.f-body.org/gears

You can figure it out pretty easily.
