i have a suncoast but i have a 6.0

imo it feels like i gained a ton of power that was lost through the stock tranny even before it was starting to take a dump on me.

on a stock file the truck feels 100 times more powerful. I havent really played with it yet as far as retuning with the new tranny because its only been in there for about a week. with a file loaded its unbelievable how much more power the truck actually puts down to the ground.

btw suncoast vs stock is night and day. I also put a new trans cooler and mag-hytec pan on there. trans runs about 30 degrees cooler

Powerstroker67 has one and the Rudy's Diesel Performance race truck has a full Suncoast. There are a few other people too that have them that will probably chime in tomorrow.

I've been running exclusively Suncoast parts in all of our 5R trans's since starting with the 6.0 work back in 2004. We currently have one in our race truck and as soon as the needed clutch material comes in, will have 2 more installed in my daily driver and our shop tow rig.

Everything I've ever gotten from them has been fantastic; and I can't say anything that will do justice to the awesome support Ron and the rest of the crew have given us with the latest parts breakages with stock components on the race truck- when a factory part breaks, they have been jumping right on it to see that we get an upgraded component built- and sometimes at some pretty expensive tooling and labor bills that they've been more than willing to handle for the research and development. I have tons of respect for that and certainly won't be looking anywhere else for transmission support anytime soon.

I have to say Matt's right on. Ron and the rest of the crew at Suncoast are simply the BEST. Ron and I spent a great deal of time working out the converters for these 5R110 in the 6.4 trucks using my F450. What you get today is the result of countless hours testing different combinations til everything worked correctly. I run the Suncoast converter and the Superduty kit(the complete internal kit they sell for these trannys), mine is not a complete Suncoast assembled unit. Aaron/Rudy's is a complete Suncoast unit, because we didn't really have a good tranny shop in his area. Either way the Suncoast combination can't be beat. For a fully test ready to run unit, just order one of the Suncoast trannys. If you have a REALLY good tranny shop that does 5R110's the Superduty kit is a good option.

I have a full Suncoast trans in my truck, and it locks up earlier that the OEM trans. My trans temps are lower, and the thing just makes the truck an animal. I have the 275 tune....... MAttttttttt where's the 310!!!! and the TCM, and the rails..... (Ball Breaking done)

My stock trans was cooked at 5500 miles running an Edge Evolution which slipped the gears and thus cooked the clutch packs.

I would say this is the second best mod I have ever done to the truck!

DO IT, DO IT!

Mike
