New Trans????

I'm looking to put a new trans in my 04 f350, I'm running an Edge Juice with a 4" straight pipe and K&N cold air intake, along with 37" tires. I'm not sure whether to go with ATS, BD, or Suncoast, and I'm not sure which upgrades I'll need, so I can stack a chip on it and do the turbo and all that good stuff without blowing the trans, any suggestions?

I've heard nothing but great stuff about BTS, but I think suncoast and ATS are both reliable options too. And its JMO, but if you want your tranny to last get rid of the edge and go with an SCT w/ custom tunes. You'll have way more power with an SCT as well, and if you wind up with bigger turbo, injectors, etc. your custom tuner can reprogram your tunes to work with the upgraded parts.

Depending on where you live East or west coast, BTS or John wood are the 2 very best.

i have neither of these. i have a billet converter from D/P products i believe it was around 1200 bucks, and i had my tranny built believe it or not at the local Cottman franchise with upgraded frictions and all the aluminum ring things were upgraded to steel with more teeth also.
i told them my plans for the vehicle, and basically it is about as bullet proof as i am going to get except that i dont have billet shafts, that's the only thing left to upgrade. i believe i paid about 3200 for the tranny.

also, i agree with going to the SCT, because the edge is the reason i ended up having to rebuild the tranny anyway.
