stock 4t65e... ugh your a pain...
Permalink Closed

so i went to my local transmission shop (terry's transmissions on taft road) and they said that my valve body was screwing up and giving my transmission low fluid pressure, soo... that also translates to why my car "chatters". because my computer is reading the low pressure it compinsates by taking in more fluid to increase the pressure, which is why my clutch packs are chattering because of the extra pressure. and this can also lead to hard shifts that are slightly noticable. so they quoted me a $2000-$3000 repair. i think i would rather go to triple edge performance and get an upgraded transmission ( + internals) for the same price lol. so ive got the basic list of what i will be getting. but i also want to get a new torque convertor as well. should i stay with the stock style convertor or select my own stall speed (trust me ive read so many articles on how to understand stall speeds and im barely figuring it out). so what im asking is what stall speed should i have or should i just go with the stock setup or maybe go just above or below it? thanks for reading and hopefully i can get some help! 

heres a list of what will be in the new transmission.

-Hardened 4th clutch shaft
-New Morse HyVo HV-093 V8 spec Gemini chain set
-Seals, gaskets, orings, and teflon sealing rings

High Energy style 3rd friction plates will be used in place of Zpack frictions as they are discontinued
-New Forward apply band
-New thrust washers
-Common failure bushings replaced, others inspected and replaced as needed
-New stator support bearing

All new solenoids in valve body including 
-Borg Warner PCS for 97-02, OE AC Delco

-Transgo Shift Kit- We slightly modify this kit for improved high throttle shift feel on modified cars as well as 
make a few other changes internally to quicken and firm up shift feel. The extra modifications alone make a 
very significant difference in shift feel and keep clutch packs alive under high powered abuse. We set up 
every transmission different to best match the vehicle it will be installed in and this is why we must have
your specific vehicle details as we do not build a one-fits-all model.

-12 Month / 15K mile warranty on ALL High Performance rebuilds! Effective on all orders placed after 3-06-11


2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Custom Sport.
