4R110 swap?

Has anyone done this? I'm looking to do a tranny before I start going into depth on the motor. And read a couple guys refer to the 4r110 tranny swap. What all is needed to do this? Pros vs cons? Now before I get a ton of "stick with the 5R" statements I'm simply asking. I'm not sure on what to do yet. I just don't want to have to worry, and I like having options. I may do the 5R. But if the perks out weigh cons I may do 4R. Any help greatly appreciated. I would imagine the taller gears would benefit me more on the track. Again. Any help greatly appreciated.

For now I'm shooting for 700-750. But before it retires I want it above 800.

Ok. I'm thinking about rebuilding one myself. Any input on internals? Suncoast rebuild kit? Billet output shaft? Converter?

I personally would do a full billet if you plan on 800+ HP.

I plan to do as much billet as possible. Billet output shaft, billet intermediate shaft, triple disk converter. I'm having a hard time finding the converter. But in terms or gear clutch packs and shift kit and valve bodies and solenoids. I'm having a hard time finding 5R performance valve bodies. I found a billet solenoid of l/r

Ok. That would make sense lol. So what would I need to do to upgrade? Upgraded solenoids? Or just that one billet od l/r. Only benefit I've heard out of it is to prevent 3-5 shift flare? And also the only solenoid I can find after stock.

I would go with an Elite transmission if that's your power goal. They're stage IV and V transmissions have pretty good reputations behind some heavily modded 6.4's.
