I have an oppiutunity to get a 200-r4 overdrive for my favorite four letter word that starts with an f, thats free
has anyone used one?
read in a magazine that they were a good piece
any input would be appreciated
Hi Racer70, you can't beat that price!
I have a 200-R4 in my 86 Monte SS and these SS's just love the 4th gear(overdrive).
Around town I usually leave it DRIVE (3rd)
and when I hit the hi-way on ramp and flow into traffic or hit an opening, I exellerate
to (maximum speed limit of course) and shift it out of 3rd to 4th and the rev's drop to a comfortable RPM hi-way cruising.My 3.73 gear ratio turns into a 2.49 in OD.
Here's info you need at: www.ntcnet.com/~dragon64/Monte_SS.html

*200-R4 vs 700-R4
and more, check it out it's all Monte SS stuff but we're cousins!
P.S. My 86 SS is bone stock and the shift's
aren't harsh but it let's you know that a
1-2 took place with a bit of a "chirp" when
"hammered", a shift kit is in the work's!
These SS's came from the factory with recallibrated performance chip's. Compared to
my brother's 84 Hurst Old's his 200-R4 has
definitely firmer shift's and can "chirp"
1-2 with ease compared to mine, so Oldmobile
has done some more to it than Chevy has. Keep
in mind that I have posi he does'nt and their
both factory stock.
Hope this helps...
