I cant spend 4100.00 on a BTS tranny. Ok I'm looking to buy parts for my tranny and have a local shop rebuild it. So I'm gonna buy the parts and some guy is gonna put them in. What parts do I need for a good rebuild/preventative maintence..kind of like why your there why not do this?

the easiest way to go is go get a tranny from ford...paid about 2,000 dollars, and it came with a warranty, 3 year or 75,000 mile.. i broke 4 transmissions in 3 years...two of them i had bought parts for them and had them rebuilt from a tranny shop, they didnt last long..it dont take much for a tranny to mess up..so i went through ford and got one, had no trouble for a couple years...just a thought..

suncoast seems pretty popular just judging from how often i see their stuff in peoples trucks. My buddy had one of their transmissions in his 02 psd. He was running all the basics plus an innovative chip, propane and nos and he couldnt manage to break it. no personal experience however.

What mods do you have? I might go your route you suggested, I can get a reman. tranny for about 1800.00 from ford. Im gonna get a upgraded VB and TQ converter becuase I think those are the weak links in the tranny. Hopefully, this tranny will take Stage 1 injectors and the TW chip! I dont sled pull and race every weekend.

The only mod i have is a Banks big hoss chip level 4, Banks downpipe and exhaust, k&n filter, and detroit locks..and i had to put a larger trans cooler...i dont have any mods put into the tranny yet...the tranny has been holding up good for about 3 years.. i run 35 inch tires no problem..i haul a 30 foot camper quite often in the summer and fall and alot of it is not on paved roads, and i plow snow all winter long so it's been pretty good...maybe where you live you have good tranny shops, but up here we dont have much options, theres only one tranny shop around here...i chose the easy way and went to ford...but its worth putting money down on a good tourqe converter...
