tranny upgrades?

I just purchased a 06 5r110 with 60k on it. I was wondering what I should do if anything to it before I put it in. I have a mag-tech pan, and I'm going to get a torque converter for it. When I choose to do this I will also put 170cc injectors in at the same time. Thanks for any info.

all the bullet proof things done, cat antifreeze, stock sticks, powermax / batmowheel, Tony Wildman tunes.

can't go wrong with a stronger input shaft too! other than that, you have to tear it down to deal with the other weak points, but you shouldn't need to do those unless you're going to be pushing some big horsepower

Do you have to tear it down to replace input shaft? What convertor you looking at? Maybe a direct drive sol?

best thing you can do is return the mag tec pan and use that money towards a billet part. The magtec pans have been proven to not improve tranny fluid temps.

Late 04 f350 lariat.

bpd
marty's regulated return
205/75 injects from holder's
WPE stage 3 ported intake
64.5 borg warner fmw ,compounds in the works now! Comp turbo set up
Warren comp trans
all the typical mods

Big thanks to Dale! The man is a true professional

As far as a converter goes I was leaning towards a suncoast, still researching that though. And the mag-tech pan was never for temps in my book, but for strength and fluid capacity. If ya want to run cooler then go with a bigger cooler, which I plan to do. Now as far as a billet shaft goes what's involved in installing one? And have read about the solenoid but don't understand that one yet. The tranny in my truck now has 248k on it just with reg maintenance. I have beat on it alot and towed alot. So as I said I want to go bigger injectors would be happy with 500 rwhp.

Really easy.....old one slides out.....new one slides in Once the TC is out it's the next thing to be removed. It's a b&#@$ sometimes to do in-frame because you have to slide the trans back far enough or drop it altogether, but if you've already got it out it'll be cake! It's heavy though

Suncoasts are good, have you checked PI too?
