What to look for in a rebuilt transmission?

I have spoken to a 2 tranny shops and received 2 very different quotes. Shop 1 quoted $2500 for mine to be rebuilt with all upgrades, sonnax .500 vb upgrade, shift kit, "multi clutch billit converter", and all new hard parts. Shop 2 quoted my $1570 for me to come pick one up that they already rebuilt with all upgrades, sonnax vb upgrade, shift kit, HD clutches, and steel plantetary, triple disc billit converter, and rebuilt hard parts.

Why could there be such a difference in price, they both sound pretty much the same.

Thanks in advance

Any difference in the warranty?

And what do they define as "all upgrades"? You can't hardly buy the 300m shafts for a grand.

Newest project: 1995 F350 CC/DRW 2WD E4OD. 3" DP, 4" Diamond Eye system. But I'm still fixin' the broken stuff......

Re: What to look for in a rebuilt transmission?

Both are a 3yr 100,000 mile.

Here is the link I found on ebay from the same company shop 2 and transmission. The one I got the estimate for has the upgraded converter.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

All factory upgrades that have been done since 1997 not sure what that means I assumed it meant they fixed any defects.
