Aftermarket trans or torque converter

Is anyone here running an aftermarket trans or torque converter in their 6.7? I'm pretty sure I can slip my TC so I'm looking at my options. But right now they look pretty slim. The only company I know of right now with anything out is ATS but I'm not sure how much that is upgraded from stock. I'm looking for something to hold 650-750hp reliably.

I'm saving for a ATS. Talk to them or we have a Monster Transmission in Brooksville Fl that might build one better an cheaper.

I have an ATS 68RE in my '11 cummins thats making over 600hp, had 1 issue where the valve body lost pressure, other than that 40K touble free miles. They fixed everything free of charge when they had it. They're the only ones with a torque converter at the moment.

How on earth did you manage that? The guys at h&s didn't slip theirs until they got way past where your at for power. Aren't you running that same tune?

He has an aftermarket turbo and 55% over pump with a hot tune. Probably pushing north of 550hp at the wheels. If a guy drove that pick up nice or even somewhat aggressively it would probably be fine, if a guy is pretty heavy on the right foot, likes to do a random burnout, truck pull, drag race, the tranny will suffer.

I'm still waiting to hear back from elite but on their site they have an aftermarket trans. Just waiting to see what they changed in it compared to stock to see if it's worth the money or if I should wait for something better. Anybody have experience with them?

The raybestos GTk clutches they have listed have worked well for us in other applications.
You may be the first one to really test one out, but that hasn't bothered you before
