thought i might add one note to the 700 saga    my father and i restored his 
1982 chevy c10  a few years ago    we put one of the gm parts crate motors in 
it  350/345 hp   changed rear end from 2.73 single trac to 3.73 posi   we 
kept the 350 lock up trans but added a better converter with some stall       
a month or so ago, he decided to go to the 700 trans for overdrive so he 
could drive it everday   we are still making some adjustments but he loves it 
   the first gear ratio is much lower in this trans and it made a lot more 
power   it will easily roast the large tires all the way through the 1-2 
shift now   plus he gets much better mileage
