Looks like I am going to be taking ownership of a 1991.5 W250, currently getting a new body on it. Cant wait but anyways, i do know that the tranny is currently slipping, nothing crazy but is going to need rebuilt soon. And when i get it my goal is around 350-400 hp. Now what i'm wondering is what the most cost effective options for the 518 trans to hold that power. My thinking is i will do a stock rebuild, probably a Goerend tq converter, and a shift kit of some kind. Is that enough to hold the power? or is it going to need a little more of a performance rebuild? i wanna try and do as much of it my self to keep costs down. I know the best option is to swap in a 47rh but that just sounds like alot to do. Im only 18 and going to college. Luckily its a diesel college, i might beable to bring it in and do it. Thanks in advance.
