Which Transmission to buy

I put the same question on PSN...i figured id throw it on both and get a mix of ideas

i didnt know if i should throw this in the trans section or 6.4 performance...mods move it if u need to

Anyway...i finally have the cash saved up to buy my transmission....im going fully built...heavy duty clutches, converter, billet reverse hub and billet input shaft...pretty much my question is should i go Suncoast, NADP, or Elite?

--And why do you pick the one you say over the others?

I'll put it to you this way: Shawn took his apart to check through it recently, and after hundreds of 1000+ HP passes and dyno runs, and it was in perfect condition.

That's what I call a transmission!!

see thats why i keep bouncing back and forth...i have NEVER heard a bad thing about an NADP race trans...Elite's looks good...and Suncoast is good too but after i talked to Nate, (i forget his last name, black 6.0 that was in the DPC)...he said he went through like 4-5 Suncoasts...switched to NADP and never had a problem...i know their all good...its just now i need to find out which is the best
