It will give a firmer 1-2 and 2-3 shift. It also has a high performance Superior overdrive billet servo with 50% more holding power than the stock overdrive servo. This servo gives a firmer 3-4 shift. This 700R4 has 8 Red Eagle clutches and full thickness Kolene steels in the 3-4 clutch drum, now with the new 3-4 Power Backing Plate.
Our 700R4 comes with the Mega Valve and an oversize low / reverse boost valves, these two valves produce higher pressures and firmer shift points. All of our high performance 700R4 transmissions come with either a 10 or 13 vane high performance / high volume pump. We use an Alto Carbonite Power Band with thicker hardened anchors that have better holding power in second and overdrive. Also included in the price is a heavy-duty balanced stall converter with furnace brazed fins, a Sonnax carbon fiber clutch and needle bearing for added strength. This torque converter can be ordered with stall speeds of 1800, 2000, 2300, 2600 or 2800 RPM (#2).

Also included in this package deal is a throttle valve cable, dipstick and tube, and an automatic converter lock-up switch. The 700R4 has a 3.06 ratio in first gear, which is 20% lower than most transmissions. The 30% overdrive will give a 30 to 40% increase in gas mileage on the road over a 3 speed transmission. This transmission is for any type of high performance / heavy duty use up to 600 horsepower / 450 torque (600 ft. lbs. torque with Raptor Drive package) using pump gasoline.
