Review on Warren Transmisson

well just got the tranny up and in my bros truck. after we got the fluid in it and ran it through the gears on jack stands we hit the road

First thoughts were that it shifted great! alittle firm but to be expected with more clutches and a fresh relearn. torque converter locks very nicely and truck seems to pull alot harder than the crappy stocker. We have only got 50 or so miles on it but we have ran it from light throttle to full throttle and it hits the gears every time very nice crisp and firm! let me add that the trans tune isnt updated yet for this tranny so it should get even better with the correct tranny tune. we do have 175/75 in the truck as well and have laid down 470 on the dyno with the stock trans and plan to get new numbers with this built unit! overall so far it seems as if it will handle anything we are going to throw at it between towing, dd, and racing. will update it after the weekend of pulling through hills and then after we get it on the dyno for live tuning at TSD! if there are any questions please feel free to ask and ill do my best to answer them.

I knew they did transmissions, but what transmission did you get or if they modify yours, then what all did they do? I'm curious as to what was done and was it done for specific purpose?

It's always good to hear/read great reviews like this.

i had him build me one from a core and ill send him mine back. he completely guts them and starts fresh! we got the fully built one with more and upgraded clutches. also got a triple disk converter with whatever stall i wanted. the purpose was to just get a tranny under the truck that we could trust and for the price shipped to the door i was one i couldnt pass up. ford wanted 3k for a stock replacement and for another 800 i got a fully built one under it so it was a good deal!

So you got a triple disc converter from Warren also? so was the $3800 the total with the built trans and converter or just the trans?

Pretty sure it's the whole thing. I know when I called and spoke with Andy, he quoted me a price right in line with that for everything (minus the cooler of course).

Yeah i saw that. But he said that for $800 more than stock...he got a built trans. Was just curious if the converter was included in the price.
