There's lots of kits out there, suncoast, ATS, PATC, which are all good, and they ad clutches to the drirect drive and other clutch packs...more clutches equals more frictional area for greater holding power, which is good. Trouble is they use thinner steels, the part in between the clutch discs to fit more frictions in there. Get up with a guy named Nate, Windrunner 408. Smart guy, he's rebuilding his own transmission with a kit from Andy Warren, of Warren diesel. I believe he said there was like 6-800 bucks worth of tools he bought just for this job. I would have liked to build my own, but the cost of the tools, time, and my lack of 100% confidence in transmissions and lack of time... did I mention lack of time?...I sent mine to Andy warren in PA, they're rebuilding it as I type this. They machine down the piston that actuates the clutches, allowing room for more clutches, plus the use of standard thickness steels. I'd recommend a billet input shaft, they're a couple hundred bucks but well worth it, especially on 37's. If you plan to break 650-700 HP you'd want to look at a billet intermediate too. Good luck.
