Question Dealer installing new tranny. Questions...

Just like the title says, My local dealer has approved a new tranny under my manufacturers warranty. Its an 08 so i want to make sure its ok to run the new tranny with my spartan tunes which i havent updated since i went to the strategy flash. Also, is a break in recommended on the new tranny? i dropped it off at the dealer with it tuned to stock dpf off. Should i run it like that for a while before tuning it back up? thanks in advance for your input.

i would call and check to make sure they dont want the stock tune on the truck. my buddy works for ford and whenever he works on my trucks, he wants them back to stock computer wise so that his ford computer doesnt mess up you tuner.

ps.... did you talk to them about upgrading the tranny so that this doesnt happen again? i know that the dealer will install arp studs to increase reliability but if i were you i would pay for the upgraded parts that it needs to run these big tunes. just throwing that out there to see if ya thought about it but hey a new free trans mission, cant beat that even if it is stock

I picked up the truck with the new tranny installed last Friday. Runs good but is still on the stock dpf off tune. Thought about upgrading some of the internals but decided to run this one to the ground and upgrade to a Suncoast when he time comes. On my way home from vacation but am going to load up the 210 as soon as I get home to see how it runs.

All the Dealers I know (around Dallas) will not do head studs if the truck is under warranty

Personally if you dont want tranny problems again dont tune it up. If you tune it plan on redoing the trans again. These trans are good for the stock HP and torque but wont handle any more without problems.

Not sure what tuner you are using but one of the tuners here have even posted on there web site that there tuner will can cause pre mature failure of trans components. There has to be a weak link somewhere.

My trucks got about 75k miles on it and its been spartan tuned since it had 20k. For those tuned 55k miles I ran the 310 and the 275 and sometimes the 210 on the stock tranny. Granted I wasnt out drag racing for time slips or dynoing it for the higest hp #'s but I still beat on it and put good use to the added power. These stock trannys can handle more abuse than most people think. I just hope this new one can do the same...

Well all I can say is you have had good luck because my tranny was replaced at 85,000 and the one in the dually was replaced at around 100,000. My truck was tuned, it towed alot and was beat on some too. No drag races or sleds hooked to it.

Are you referring to a 6.4?
