ATS tranny?

These good? What kind of tranny for a 6.0 would y'all suggest... probably looking into a new one, it's slipping from what I can tell at this point. 60,500+ miles and over 20 1/4 mile passes, I think this 5R110 has done it's time

I was looking at the SunCoast trannies online last night... For what they are they seem reasonably priced.

from what i understand, ATS has a great transmission and a 3 year warranty... I have never done any research on the SunCoast transmissions...

Hey Nate, Tranny doesn't like ya anymore! Well maybe you can get away witha new torque converter and a fluid change. Hope all goes well.

IMO, ATS has stagnated. At one time they were a leader.

I have heard good things from folks who have SunCoast. They seem to like what they offer.

I have an ATS in my Dodge and had some problems with the first trans, I made them send me another and didn't have a problem with that one. I HIGHLY suggest you get the billet input shaft for the trans.

Ammo22 is having to deal with ATS and trying to get it repaired under warranty. I wouldn't want you to have to deal with that, Nate. Go with Suncoast...

Yeah Nate I heard some good things about Suncoast also if you going to be spending that kind of money anyway, you might as well go all out .....I heard ATS is slippin, but the important thing is that there is a reason your asking.....whats the ol' speed demon doin' now???
