jimg.allentown said: (quoted from post at 21:06:02 02/22/14) Typically, my cost to overhaul an automatic will vary with the transmission, but in general, a complete overhaul kit usually costs me in the vicinity of $300. Some are more, most are less. Adding in the cost of a rebuilt converter at about another $300 and I am up to $600 average plus oil. Hard parts are sometimes another factor, BUT I can usually buy a jumkyard trans (as-is and pulled) for about $80. Even so, a NEW gearset runs in the $300-400 range for most units, and drums average about $75 each.
Overall, I can properly overhaul the average automatic for about $750 for a first class job.
I do know all about the skill required to handle a stick shift. I drove big trucks for 21 years in a combination of OTR and local peddle. In a big truck, I would not give 2 cents for an automatic. In a 4-wheeler or 6-wheeler, the opposite.
Regardless: Automatics are smoother. That is simply a fact of life whether you agree or not. Never had one stall on takeoff. Never had one miss a gear or grind.

Yes autos never miss a shift. Your prices on transmission parts are for stock parts, at least for a Dodge 47re or 48re. If I was going to overhaul that transmission, theres no way I would go with a stock sloppy converter. At least $500 for a decent converter. When I compare my truck, the answer is easy. IT had an automatic. The auto was upgraded. This improved reliability and towing. It has been swapped for an NV4500 and its like night and day. Tows way better with significantly less engine effort.

When I compare my truck the way it is now, with a manual, to what it was, an automatic, the truck was a DOG compared to how well it tows now.

I don't know what to tell you but come time there will be no more manual, look at how semis have changed and how pickups only dodge offers it, in time it will be all automatic whether we like it or not, not saying I don't like the manual, but an automatic anyone can drive and that's the way it will be whether you wanna believe it or not.

6.2 Gas with a Tremec 5-speed for Brazil.
Don't think Ford offers 6.7 with manual in any market.
