    Still loving my 00, just hit 250k this week

    I bought it new with 74 miles on it and it still runs & drives as good as it did off the lot from day one.

    Excellent. Mind if I ask what kind of fuels mileage you get. I noticed mine dipped within the last year. Thanks

    Damn, wish I got that. My last avg was 14.5. I have a 00 as well, no mods. Usually I drive 35 miles to work, all highway.

    Iíve got an Air Force One CAI (they donít make them anymore) with a aFe Pro Dry S on it, Factory Tech valve body, and I keep the oil changed with M1 5w20 every 4000 miles and Shaeffers 204sat transmission fluid every 75k

    My truck still has three OE COPís on it, I only replace them as needed.

    If my odometer worked all the time I would have taken a pic at 250k but it comes and goes. (I need to fix it)


    My ABS light came on and by scanning the codes I think Iíve got some cracked soldier joints in the module itself. I need to pull it off and either send it in or see if I can fix it myself.

    I can't find valve bodies for the 4r70, all I can find is the how to on modding it, by drilling the holes a bit bigger, (can't remember the mod name). Do you use conventional oil or synthetic?
    Six of my cops are oe, but I have only 119k. Waayy behind you. That's why I was wondering about your mileage.

    Who's odometer really works all the time right? Mine comes and goes as it pleases as well. Lol I'm just to tired after work to care.

    Get in tough with Chris Garrett at A1 transmission. I'm sure he can build you one.

    The Gregg Evans / Factory Tech valve body is nothing but a modified OE unit from what I understand

    It was a valve body that had been reworked and a couple new springs for the accumalators. It worked well!!! Hrere is a kit that has the parts. https://globaltransmissionparts.com/...0aAh1YEALw_wcB

    And thanks for all the info guys, I debated on getting in touch with Chris, I see his name blasted all over Facebook.
