Beefing the Transmission

I am putting the XDP Powerstroke solution kit in my truck. I already have an exhaust, programmer, gauges, and an intake. my question is what should i do to my transmission to handle all the extra torque and hp going through it? and any ideas on extra costs of it.
Thanks, Matt

What is involved in the kit? A stock trans will hold around 500rwhp+ if you don't beat up on it too much. A few guys have hit 600rwhp on a stock trans and still holding.

Beefing the Transmission

It really depends on the truck, how you drive it, and how it was maintained. I just studded my truck and added some injectors and my torque converter went a week or two later. I never got a chance to really beat on it, the 5r110 is a pretty stout tranny for stock applications.

Keep the fluid clean, watch the 3-5 shift and make sure it doesn't begin to 'flare' between shifts. Make sure if its tuned the tunes tune the tranny as well.
