Default To Rebuild or Not to Rebuild:HELP

I need help please. I have a 4EAT with 212k miles...I obviously need a rebuild especially since it was lighting up the "AT Temp" dash light. I need to know if there are any recommended places that can rebuild my tranny to better than new specs (high performance shift kit,upgraded internals, 4200 rpm high stall converter,etc.).I don't mind shipping it, I just need a direction to go in. The reason for the need for the upgraded internals is because I'll be adding a 16g turbo,750cc injectors,catless uppipe, catted downpipe, exhaust, upgraded tmic to run a mild tune up to 300hp. Also,If I'm able to find a low mileage 4EAT could I just get away with installing a 4200 rpm stall converter without a rebuild? Will the stock 4EAT with the new converter be able to handle the increase in power? Any info and help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Rob

IPT is what everyone seems to recommend hands down, but I have no personal experience. You could also buy a performance 4eat from them for $3500.

For that kind of money, have you also considered a manual swap? Not sure what your taste is. Also, I hope that engine doesn't have the same kind of mileage as that tranny haha!
