I have one of Dave Goerend's transmissions. It is basically a better valve body, some upgraded internals (can't remember all of them), and a triple disk converter.

well I'd rather pay close to 2.5x what a factory one would cost to get something with a warranty and built by someone who knows what they're doing

You got that right! I have had my tranny for a few years and what little problems I have had were taken care of by DaveG. I have heard of one time that somebody had a complaint about DaveG, but that tuned out to be a miss communication and at the end both were happy with the results. He is customer service at its finest!

I'll second that about Goerend, i had a retaining gear come apart in my transmission, probably didn't hurt the trans all that bad, but there were pieces of it floating around somewhere in it and without hesitation Dave started building a new one and I paid for shipping and away I went, 100% + if it were possible satisfied with Goerend, and I won't company bash but I've heard nightmares about ATS and Suncoast, but in saying that I haven't had to deal with them I'm just stating what I've heard
