Hi my name is***** be glad to help. What is the complete model of your transmission from the transmission ID tag? Also what is the complete model of your engine from the engine tag? Is there a reason you do not want to rebuild the existing transmission? Also you should be able to get an exchange rebuild and core your old one in.
