Thats outrageous. There has got to be a different trans you can get or find cheaper place that can rebuild it. Keep searching and good luck

Never been a fan of the C4.....should have asked us about what to look for ... BEFORE you bought it ... sorry you had such a bad experience.. guess we know why the guy sold it .. next time look for a C3... parts are easy to find

No mention here on transmission type. I've seen units like Tremec's for considerably less $$, might be worth a look.
