Question Billet shafts? When needed?

Long story short, my 5R110W is in parts at the dealer. I am going to order a converter from Suncoast and pretty sure the Iron Pac 3. I already have the 'Diesel Site' external filter system and MagHytec pan.

This is mainly for work pulling and maybe some horsing around with a 'Stang or Camaro when unloaded... currently I have about 400rwhp only. No drag strip, no tractor pulls, etc

I plan to up it a bit when warranty is out to around 500rwhp, ideally have a larger IC then, AirDog, full EGR delete (not just my block off plates currently, which saved me when the horizontal cooler blew), and maybe one of those EDE modified Atmosphere turbochargers. Broad power and low EGTs is what I am mainly after.

At what point would billet shafts be needed in one of these things?



Thanks

I would consider RCD's 6.4 converter over suncoast's, jmo. And I would do as many billet parts as you can afford.

Can you explain more about the converter than 'just your opinion'? Have you used both or something?

$1500 in shafts is not that much at this point, yet if they are not warranted, why waste the money?

if your 6.4 is stock I would skip the billet stuff, jmo. If you're serious about bumping it to the 550hp range then I would do as much billet stuff inside the trans as I could afford.

I would also recommend RCD's torque converter over the suncoast one.

Thanks for the link, that is the type of information I was looking to find. I am going to give the a call today.

I do not plan injectors, studs, etc. No desire to drag/tractor pull with it.

550rwhp is past where I would like to be, seems that I would have higher EGTs when towing and not what I am after.
