Transmission Rebuild

Does anyone know a good shop in Georgia that is good with the 5r110w? My tranny took a dump today so I need to get this thing done soon. Not really trying to do it myself as I don't have access to all the special tools required.

Thanks

I'm not sure if Diesel Performance Converters does complete builds, but they are gaining a great reputation in the Power Stroke community for their torque converters. A good bit of the high horsepower trucks now have one. They're located in McDonough, GA, just south of Atlanta.

Ok ok. Would it be best to go with their converter over a RCD converter. I don't really race or anything.

Either one is sufficient. I've had good luck with my RCD converter. The 1600 RPM stall I use seems perfect for these trucks with factory or modified compounds. The RCD converter also has a 5 year warranty through Precision Industries, which isn't bad. I'm not sure what Phil's warranty is like. I know he has a good one though.

Yeah I'm just unsure if the mercon lv is the best fluid for the suncost clutches. Hopefully someone in the know will inform us.
