turbo 700 transmission????

hi all, just wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with a turbo 700. i got a quote today for $900 from tail shaft to torque converter with shifter and 2500 stall. of course it is second hand.

just wondering if it is worth buying to put behind a 355 stroker.
any info on this transmission or somethign better would be a great help.

thanks pandy

th700 strength is about the same as the th350, just with over drive. if its a vn-vp(no electronic control) type you should be right.

yer it is out of a vn-vp, is it worth getting or is it just worth getting a turbo 30 and strengthing it and shift kitting it. i just want something that will hold together under some load.
thanks for your help

T700's are used behind lS1's and can handle quite a bit of torque (as it is torque, not power, that breaks driveline components).

Do a search for GM Powertrain or GM Drivetrain on the Net. They have quite a lot of info' about transmission strengths on there.
