transmission options

well i finally did, i bit the bullet and got my x3 from innovative while i love it, the motor loves it, my trans didn't, i keep it on economy for a little while i couldn't help myself i turned it up and almost instantly it bucked and jerked and the next thing i knew the tow/haul mode light was flashing and it wouldn't go into reverse and wouldn't go in to 4th unless it was in limp mode, but i keep driving it here and there, then it fixed it self kinda shifted fine just wouldn't shift in to o/d under wot. until it finally went and it went with a vengeance almost lost all gears barely moves when i put it in reverse it goes forward, but i think all that has to do with the fact it was losing fluid from the trans pan. my question is can anyone tell me what whet bad and WHAT IS A GOOD AFTERMARKET TRANS TO GO WITH? i am pretty sure the trans was already wounded before i put the tuner on it, it is not innovative fault, it when just my own reckless driving habits and its first 80,000 miles as a work truck. anyone running a aftermarket trans i would love to here from you.

The bigest problem with an aftermarket 5R110 is getting the tuning right. You can have the most badazz built 5R110 but can destroy it with incorrect tuning. Your best bet would be a reman 5R110 or if you have the cash a BTS 5R110 if they make them then run BTS tunes.

Try giving innovative a call. Mine shifts great with the tunes. If you go with a aftermarket trans. than go with an NADP. Those are the ones most of the guys with high HP trucks are running. Most guys will be fine with the stock trans.they should be good to around 550 HP to the wheels with good tuning. My plan is to run mine stock until I get problems then get a NADP in it.

i worked with innovative to try and get it tuned right but i don't think it is the tuning. either way it is already to late the trans is DONE, i definitely need a new one.

I know when mine goes(if it isnt already) that i'm gonna hit up BTS. They have some supposedly solid transmissions, but when I met them in person their hospitality has made me a customer for life.

No, they are only designed to handle up to 640 ft/lbs of torque which translates into less then 500hp. Some last longer, some don't, mainly it depends on tuning, but they are only tested to handle up to 640 ft/lbs of torque.

640 ft/lbs Thats odd Ive never heard that before on the forums in the last 4 yrs. Just a SCT, exhaust and intake your already hitting over 700 ft/lbs. I'd like to know where your getting that info from. Im still on a stock tranny and pushing a whole lot more as well.
