Did you do it yourself?
Why so high on cost compared to others? (something special/stronger)

How do you like it? when it downshifts when you step on it, does it go in gear firmly.


My stock one doesnt know which gear to downshift into sometimes.

Ex: driving in 5th. hit the go peddle goes into 3rd for a couple seconds and realizes it can still go into 2nd and downshifts into second.

This kind of attitude from it is annoying/ pissing me off.

Tq converter is probably why it seems so expensive... all tq converters I've seen run anywhere from $1000 -1400, $1000 for clutch packs. Plus oil, filters and the soleniods... $2800 seems right to me. Better than $5000 for one that's already built!

I had it profressional done way to Many little parts and specifications for theese trans. I have triple disk convertor billet input shaft stage 3 iron clutch packs and deep trans pan along with filters. And it was 1400 to rebuild and install. The trans shifts diwn much fast if your running stock tuning it will feel a little firmer, youll really notice its full potentail with sct custom tuning. Erics x race with buikt trans add ins to it was not liking my trans at all very rough ad slow and lugged the truck down. Matts srl extreme is noticably motr powerful i boost more and the trans is very nice with it
