ford reman tranny

i have an 03' torqshift and have decided to go with a reman from ford this time. does anyone know if the reman will have all of the larger and better parts that the 05' and up redesign has. the parts that i keep breaking are the ones that were addressed in the redesign in 05'. rebuilding with the 03' parts it only last a little over a year. i have explained this to the service writer, but i am not sure that he understands that i don't care if my truck is an 03', i want an 05' and up tranny.

I would seriously reconsider a Ford remanufactured tranny. I ate two (4R100)of them in a short time. I could have gotten another under warranty but didn't want thr hassle of being on the side of the road. I went to a reliable shop and had mine built right. When they went in the remanufactured one from Ford, they were surprised it ran at all. Said it was put together wrong. Just remember that Ford is giving the job to a shop that was low bidder. I personally would rather pay for a good one with my own money than let Ford "give" me one. My $0.02. Good luck.

i have had a reputable shop do the rebuilds on mine before and have been very pleased. the 03' and 04' trannies have many weak links that have been addressed with the 05' and up. after purchasing the torqshift rebuild manual, and seeing all that has been redesigned, i want an 05' or newer for the many upgrades.

I dont know why you think the tranny is that big of a difference, I have a Feb built 03. Still on a stock tranny with 90k mods on it. Running turbo and injectors and 5 different tunes over 5 years mine is running strong. If you gonna do anything with your trans you might as well invest in suncoast parts.

what happens to that tranny with a 500 rpm lowered stall billet convertor? that may be a difference. my convertor is locked with no slip. the engine accesory drive belt squeaks when the tranny changes gears. it seems to be harder on the friction material in the first design trannies. as far as suncoast, it will get everything suncoast has when it is time to rebuild it. under warranty, also. i just buy the parts. for me, a win, win. me not regearing probably helps kill my tranny. i am considering 4.30's.

I've got about 37k now on a Ford reman that was installed a little over 2 years ago. Most of that has been tuned with lots of towing and some track time. It still seems to be working just fine. My stock 04 tranny only lasted 42k. So maybe it was improved

I am sure Adam has told you that if they install it at ford, they cover labor too, if it happens to blow while under warranty, once again, unbeatable!
