E4od rebuild

I feel as if my tranny is on it's last leg, I know everyone says go with a BTS but I can't she'll out that kinda cash, I don't plan on upgrading my truck that much, 6 position chip, exhaust, intake, maybe stage ones and a drop in turbo from BD. Would a stock rebuild with the modifications for extra clutch plates, planetarys etc with a sonnex or transgo shift kit and a good aftermarket torque converter be okay? I've tried researching that but can't seem to find anything. Thanks.

revmax makes a good rebuild kit. that coupled with a modified valve body and good torque converter should last a long time.

I didn't see a rev max rebuild for an e4od, I have a local guy who a powerstroke shop has recommended and he uses just ford clutches, does the modifications to fit more, steel planets a sonnex shift kit and modifies the 6.0 converters to work. I asked why he doesn't use red eagle clutches or borgwarner he says they don't last as long, which I don't believe that. What do you think?

bump for some additional input. in search of a e40d replacement

I don't plan on any heavy mods, just a 6pos, and exhaust. would like
to get a better converter for it while I have the tranny out.

just doing some research on here... looks like I want to go with
a 1300rpm triple disc converter, with a transgo tugger kit and
bts valve body.

looking at all the internal rebuild kits, and they all seem to have
the same parts, so still sifting through that info.

I'm new to the diesel side of ownership but have built my share of performance E4OD transmissions for other guys diesels. Depending on the year you're starting out with, will determine the fianl cost. First thing to do is get the ASTG overhaul along with the upgrade manuals. The one thing I did with all mine was use the Sonax Sure Cure kit. You don't need any other shift kit as the Sonax parts included and can firm and speed up the shifts as you desire, as well as firm up the hydralics. Be sure to use the heavy duty planetaries in the both the forward(6 pinion) and overdrive(4 pinion) sets. The other thing is to use the thinner pressure plates in the forward, direct, and overdrive pistons. This allows an extra clutch in each set. There are tons of things to upgrade and believe me you can build a top notch transmission for about $1600 in parts. There are a couple of different ways to go with torque converters, there is the pulling style and then the high speed drag racing converters. Its all about the usage of the truck. Then you'll want the largest cooler you can afford to keep the new parts cool.

The E4OD gets a bad rap, but if built right its as good as any other high performance transmission.

wish you were closer to central texas !

I ended up getting my truck out of the
shop I took it to. the guy had zero idea
of what I was talking about when I started
telling him what I wanted, including some
of the stuff you mentioned... sitting back
in my driveway now.

IMO, get a Ford with a warrantee best option unless your getting a BTS-JW.
