    Hello everyone! I’m looking for a good transmission shop to do a rebuild on a 727 in the Bay Area or Central Valley area. Just looking for recommendations, thank you!

    Do you need it removed and replaced too? I can recommend a great shop in Morgan Hill for that. But, I would buy the transmission from John Cope's shop, and have it drop shipped to the shop you use.

    I would also call Precision of New Hampton and get a quality torque converter shipped to you as well. I absolutely love the converter the build for me.

      That's good. Is this going to be a relatively stock build or are you looking for something more performance oriented?

      Unless you are building a high performance/ race oriented car, I would look at adding a Transgo 2 shift improvement kit, and take the transmission to a local shop that has the highest customer reviews on yelp and other places. You can also buy a very high quality rebuild kit and bring it to the shop you choose. They often come with special instructions to improve the transmission performance.

      Also, adding a good quality torque converter matched to your car, horsepower level and driving style is always wise. So is adding a plate style transmission cooler. Let me know if you want the name of the shop in Morgan Hill.

      A rebuild kit for that transmission is probably about $120...
      Rebuilding it yourself is easier than falling out of bed...

      Yeah I’ll take the name for the Morgan hill shop. It’s gonna be a street car that will have some extra horsepower to it.
