Ron we have talked about level ten before. I wouldn't give them a cent of my money. It was a LONG time ago but they got busted "building" the W4A33 in the auto AWD Talon, laser, and Eclipse. They would charge like $5,000 for a full trans with converter that was supposed to be "fully built" but in the end they were just doing a basic OEM level stock rebuild. They only thing that saved their asses in this case is that particular trans is fairly stout even from the factory.I had ARD do it last year, They used the AW factory rebuild and this is what they did
Shift solenoid kit. Includes SLT, TCC, B1, C1, C2, C3 1 ( PArts wich were just under $600.00)
Install shift solenoid kit 4.20 hours Labor
Before the upgrade I was able to brake boost to about 4K then go, After I can only get it to 2500 rpm and it will hold it there. This was one of the best upgrades I have done to the car. I will post what we find in the hopes of saving people some money. I can say STAY away from the Level 10 ECu flash. A total waste of 200.00 . When I called them today I got no details just 'Sure our transmission will hold 500 awhp "
My thoughts on the Volvo 6 speed GT auto trans are that it is pretty stout trans, way better than the 5 speed auto that it replaced. I'm not sure about if anyone actually makes a good billet high stall converter, we may be stuck with a re stalled stock unit other than that and having to do the VB fix these auto boxes seem to take a bunch of abuse.
If you wanted to go full balls out trans build you could do a high quality OEM rebuild like the Sonax stuff, and cryogenically treat the hard parts along with shot peening them or WPC process them. You could have a serious trans with out any fancy billet replacement parts. But I would not go down that path until I blew up a stock trans first.
