They had a bad rap for the longest time. My friend has a re-worked 2004R behind his 408ci bb Chevy in a '67 Chevelle SS. 3 years and 8,000 miles it's still doing fine. Shifts pretty hard, and really quick.

Good info for the boxy guys.

My upgraded and rebuilt 2004r was a huge change to the personality of my wagon. Now all it needs is a better engine.

I'm shopping around for a rebuilder right now, would you share a ball park money spent and a parts list? (PM if you want)


Thanks, Paul

I don't mind sharing.

My transmission was a swap out. When the trans first started going, a mechanic shop said their specialist would charge $1000 for a stock rebuild. This seems to be the stock ballpark. I opted for an upgraded unit since I was (is) resilient to scrap my car and at some point put in a bigger engine (much to the dismay of my brother and parents).

I used CK Performance who are based in Long Island, NY. The new unit was updated for 500 HP / 500 TQ and I didn't have to worry about shipping since it was close. I can't recall the exact numbers, but somewhere around $2,400, including removal and installation. So figure the transmission was no more than $2,000 and that was back in September 2013.

Bowtie Overdrives was my runner-up since they had a pretty good reputation.

I'd have to check the service manual for what parts are exactly in it. On the ckperformance website, it lists what goes into his transmissions. I believe so does the Bowtie site.

It's the same story with almost every transmission - the OEM releases it, and over time it gets improved and refined by both the OEM and the aftermarket. 700R4, 200-4R, 4L60/4L60E, etc.

The cool thing about the current transmissions is that the aftermarket is doing this process much faster. There's a ton available for the latest GM, Ford, and Chrysler transmissions, as well as most all import stuff too.
