I just pulled all of my driveline to prepare everything for a 460 swap. I have been contiplating on rebuilding the transmission myself. I priced a rebuild kit and shift kit which total to only $148 for everything. I've been reading through the Haynes Tech book on the Ford transmissions, obviously on the C6 model. I have a spare C6 that came with the 460 I bought but it is set up for a 2wd, not 4wd. My question to you all is is this something that you would do yourself if you have the resources and tools or pay "x" amount of $ and have joe-blow in town rebuild it? Any tips or suggestions are welcome as always. :popc1:

I would also be interested in this info. I need to rebuild my trans and transcase. Not for a swap (that would be cool, though), but mine are leaky and just need some "freshining up".

You t-case is probably ok unless you want to replace the rear output seal. I got my trans rebuilt for $300 at the local shop including parts and labor. For the extra money on an auto I'd pay to have it built.

Well...I called two transmission shops here in town and was quoted $300 plus the cost of the shift kit for a rebuild and the other shop wanted $550 for a rebuild with a shift kit. What do you guys think on these prices? Reasonable?

I paid $280 for rebuild and shift kit. $300+ shift kit is not to bad, $550 is outrageous in my opinion. But if you don't know how to rebuild auto tranny already then you should just pay someone who does, because if you screw-up once you will be spending $300 anyways with possibabilty(sp?) trashing your tranny.

my rebuild was $300 w/ shift kit if I recall correctly... $500 is a bit high, but depending on your area, it could be right. Be glad it doesn't have overdrive :toothless
