Dirtyd0g built 4r70w
This is picked up only
I have here a 4R70W built by Alan from dirtydog performance. It's built to the specs in the JerryW article. The valve body is a Lentech auto shift with transbrake unit that I had Alan install.
Trans has at most 6-700 miles on it and 15-20 1/4 mile passes on it.
Valve body info from lentechs website.
Lentech's valvebodies have become a hallmark in the performance overdrive marketplace. This is evidenced by the demand for and use of them by major francise retailers and competing transmission companies alike!
In response to demand from enthusiasts and racers, Lentech has developed a Transbrake valve body for the AODE/4R70W transmission.
Installing this valve body in your transmission will add reliability as a result of its custom fixed line pressure. This prevents delayed line rise, (which causes slipping), and ensures positive clutch engagements.
.Quick, positive transbrake apply and clean release
.Retains auto-shifting feature for convenience ( full manual model available: requires NO electronics )
.Operates at fixed line pressure
.Provides full-time lube / increased cooler volume
Install and Wiring Kit Part# 7G276-ODWK-WC
I paid $1500 for the trans and $750 for the valve body plus whatever the wiring kit was
Looking to get $1750 obo
