Anyone heard of MTS Diesel Transmissions?
I've been looking for a upgraded tranny (I know, I know, BTS and JW are the way to go but also cost $4500+ plus shipping) and I came across MTS Diesel. Specifically looking at their stage 2. It comes with a billet triple disk convertor and extra elements in the drums. They say it has racing frictions and steels. For a tad less than $3000 it kinda seems like a good deal. Also comes with a 18 month warranty.
My TC is on the way out, it shudders pretty bad at low RPM's and locks and unlocks occasionally. The PO said he rebuilt the tranny about 50k ago but said he has ran it really hot a few times. He also said he put the stock TC back in because the tranny shop said it was still in working order (worst idea ever!)
I'm putting stage 2's in so I should be in the 400 hp range and they say this tranny is rated 100-250 hp over stock, so basically up to 465 hp. Any input on this? There website seems pretty legit so who knows. I would like a BTS or JW but I never plan on needed the HP capabilities they come with. I also looked at Racer X. Theirs is 3650 with their billet TC. What about them? I'm trying to make this as reliable a truck as possible. I'm tired of worrying about it on road trips with my family in it.
Thanks guys in advance!
