I have one.. sort of ;)

A new dad is borrowing it. And it is a great reference.

I probably should copy it.

Hopefully I'll be done with it next month!

I finally got parts ordered from Husek. That was an in depth process...

I was originally going to source my parts from CK as he very clearly lays out whats in the kit online and has good breakdown of what power level each is good for

But I called CK a few times and rarely get an answer and it seemed that when I asked if they had parts in stock they didn't know, never had a definite answer and were kinda dodgy. There's a ton of threads online of CK shipping portions of kits, not telling you what they are short on, when they will get replacements in and I just didn't want to deal with that. It's a shame since some of CK's designs and parts are top notch.

Extreme Automatics does 2004rs too of course but don't list kits.

Art carr does kits and they are affordable but I don't like some of what they do concept wise. Elimination of accumulators, no TC lockup.

Husek does love to talk. I probably spent 6-8 hrs talking on the phone with him. It's tough to break through but he really does have a lot of great info. I kinda ran into the same issue with him, I had a CA valve body out of my 2+2 and I thought he could just tweak it so it would work with my turbo Buick setup. He basically wouldn't consider that and got me to buy a turbo Buick BR valve body And governor. He's a bit of perfectionist with his valve bodies and won't use a trans go kit.

I just sent my check to Husek for parts. It was about double what I thought I'd spend but a lot was governor, shift kit Husek work and valve body and drum. Hopefully everything works out.

I read those reply about Ck after I already ordered. He is a real pain to get ahold of. But all of the parts I ordered came in 3 days and in good shape. He is defiantly a little cheaper than Husek on the same parts. Dave told me they get allot of the parts at same warehouse. But Dave is more readily available to talk and support so that’s worth something also.
If you can copy or sell your book I would be interested just do I don’t miss anything on this build. I only have the gm manual
