Need new trans

hey guys, so last weekend my stock trans failed on me, not sure exactly whats meesed up but the truck cant even drive and i know i need a new one. i got a price for an overhaul on my current one but for the kind of money he wants i can just buy a new built one...

which built tranny should i choose for best price? Suncoast? BTS? i live in canada so cant just pick it up i would have to have it shipped...

i am also debating weather to do the tranny swap myself or not... how difficult is this? i would need to rent some kind of tranny hoist i know... any other special tools ?

thanks,

I would just go with another stocker preferably year 05 06 or 07. bts is booked through October.

what do you do that would require a $6k dollar built trans? It's a 1/3 of the price of the truck imo. I could go through 3-5 stockers for that price. jmo.

Since you live in Canada, I would recommend NADP. Hands down they are the best there is and you wont have to deal with any customs issues. JMO.

Wow where are you finding stock trannys for such a low price? BTW the truck is tuned and has future plans of turbo and injectors. Also tows 7 ton 5er and the odd sled pulls and hard daily driving so i think its worth the extra to get something built...

I''ve heard NADPs are great and for the price i would hope so...anyone on here running one? What can i expect from a trans like this other than the fact its bulletproof ? I'm starting to get excited lol.

I will make some calls tomorrow, that sucks if BTS is booked up...

Now about the install, any tips ??

I did my install my self with my brother.. I have a vehicle lift as well, so that helped a lot... Pretty straight forward if you have some mechanical background.. Also i did a new trans cooler since the old one had all the debris form the shot trans in it... It took me about 7 hrs to do the swap.. Just plan on a full day

Yea based on what you are planning to do with the truck, I would recommend something more than stock for sure. I haven't heard of anyone on here running them. I know of a couple guys on other forums that live there in Canada that run them and they have compound turbo trucks that they do A LOT with like racing, towing, etc. I think true high quality and piece of mind knowing that you have a tranny that you will most likely never have to replace again and will handle anything you throw at it except neglect and stupidity of course.

You could also check out Twisted Diesel trannies as I have heard good about them as well I know for me, I am going to look at Warren transmissions. He is kind of a new comer but I am hearing some good things about his stuff and he has GREAT prices. like an 800hp capable tranny for just over $3k. Might be worth looking into.

I will also be doing the install myself when I get around to doing mine. I dont know much about it either other than it will probably be a real PITA. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Now i was kinda under the impression that there would be a trans or two BEST fitted for the 6.0l, like the SCT tuner and pretty much everything else the 6.0l is so picky lol. But could it be safe to say that the majority of aftermarket built trans will be good ??

And yeah, i can imagine its gonna be a PITA. But if there are no special tools needed or nothing extra tricky im sure i can do it even if it does take me forever lol.
