Trans on it's way out options?

Hi there,

I have a 2005 F350 with the following stuff on it,
powermax turbo
Sct with looney wild
straight pipe

My trans has been acting strange lately, say for example I get on it would hold the gear out and then really bang into the next one almost like it was over revving the gear.

I also in the wet the other day spun up the rear end and then it stayed in 2nd gear and didn't want to change out until I stopped put it in "N" and then back into drive it then would go through the gears ok.

I guess the truck is around 450hp with the powermax and the tuning will the stock trans take that or is it time for a built one? What are my options? Is it worth changing the fluid and both internal and external filters out?

I had the delay then slam into gear a few times under heavy acceleration, changed internal screen and inernal filter, topped off with fluid (its Mercon LV now) and it shifts smoother and faster now. No more slamming gears. Mine really needed it. That was about 3k miles ago, still running top. Looking back at itthe Iinternal screen didnt look like it needed changing at all but the peice of mind that its new is good. Dealer says they do it with the paper filter all the time, plus thats what will take sand out (I'm in the desert. You could get the new filters then have it go out and youve wasted that money, or it could solve your problems like mine.
