    Will consider selling to someone who needs it for a 1972 Stage 1.

    Over a year ago, I posted in another thread warning people about a 72 Stage 1 that was for sale in Brunswick OH. It was Flame Orange / white interior.It was badly misrepresented in the Ad and I took alot of crap about "letting it go" or the "one that got away." Anyway , if someone on the Board knows who bought it, I do remember that it had an incorrect Pontiac trans in it, and this would be real close to original. Just trying to help!:TU:

    I would like a BB for my Stage1 but my VIN is 173680.

    Just for the gee whiz file, what does a BB trans cost, vs a regular T400. I have heard there were differences in them, but dont know what. Seems like people make a big deal of them.
    Just curious.

    The BB is a "factory" prepped Heavy Duty 400 turbo.

    The guys at the plant threw in a couple extra clutch plates, some valve body mods, and a different governor.

    Basically the same is done when someone builds a 400 turbo from an Electra for HD street use. A shift kit, some HD clutches, and a HD int sprag is installed, with some governor work.

    Unless you own the car the tranny came from, I reckon it's just another core.

    I agree 100% Glen.

    Don't pay a premium on a non-numbers transmission. :beer

    The info you need can be gathered from the Tag (RH SIDE) or the Vin stamped along the pan rail (LH side).
