Default 200R4 "CTF" trans code?

I am talking to a guy who has a 2004r for sale. I asked him to look at the code and he says it is a CTF, can this be right?

After looking at some other sites it looks as if this transmission is from a Canadian Caprice. The guy that has it says that the top of the bell housing is flat so I am guessing that it has the dual bolt pattern. Any one know about this trans? whats with the "F" I noticed that some of the higher performance 2004R trannies had an "F" in the code. Any body know about this?

I thought most 200R4 are duel bolt patterns. You can find them in cars with that other GM make engine in it.

I think most of them are duel bolt and I've seen others say that they have never seen anything other than duel bolt. I'm just looking for all the info I can find before I drive 100 Miles to look at this trans.

Shanghai you sound to me like you are willing to spend a decent dollar to upgrade your ride. If I was you I would look into a shot engine but otherwise decent complete car drivetrain in a Late 80s Monte SS or better yet any Vin 9.

Sorta like what you came across recently but useful. The way your engine runs a performance 200-4R and a 3.73 should be killer.

I have not been able to find any of these cars or parts. I was going to use the trans I found and some of these parts:

http://www.ckperformance.com/resourc...BUILDKITS.html

Would this make an ok Trans.

I don't know but I am sure there are guys on here that do. Thinking Cutty etc...

I have always heard that the thing to do to a 200-4R is Grand Nationalize it. So my gut tells me you are on the right track.

Found what I have gathered. If you cant get a GN,H/O,or SS tranny. Or dont care search for a part ppls think are gold. The F at the end mean it is a 86 or later and is pose to be better. I got a KTF th-200r4. And Im just goin to find some good articles or do what they suggest.

What is a '85 442 (200R4 trans only) complete core worth? It is still in the car with the VIN 9 engine.

How hard are these to rebuild? Could it be done at home?

An 85' 442 should have an OZ code 200 R4. They are desirable because they are correct for the Hurst Olds. A core would be worth at least $200 maybe more if you find the right buyer.

If you have a lot of patience and are willing to fail a few times before getting it right go ahead and try it yourself. You'll need some special tools and I would recommend buying a good manual. Many transmission shops can't seem to get the 200 R4 right so if you do decide to take it to someone make sure they are reputable and know the 200R4 well. The Grand National guys seem to have them figured out and Turbobuick.com has a lot of great resources. I just went through my OZ trans with a friend who does it for a living (3rd time) and we'll soon find out if we did it right this time. If the shifts still aren't firm it's going to Brian Hoffer or CK performance.
