6.0 for 97 7.3??

Looking to get rid of my 04 6.0 for a 97 7.3. The truck I'm looking at has had one owner the truck has only 76k on it but the tranny is out I'm trying to pick it up for $3,00. The truck has sat for ten years in a garage it gets started once a week. The tranny on the other hand is this a common problem with these trucks? And if so is there anyway to beat it? I have money saved to fix this problem as well as add some shinny stuff to it. Any suggestions would be great.

Yes trannys are common... either do a racerX rebuild, or just get a BTS trans, 4500 for unlimited mileage and HP

Three letters: BTS

A BTS trans on top of the price for the truck, and you're still coming out ahead of buying a truck with a working transmission.

Still working on the price of the truck thinking i can get it for less.. and here in Washington these trucks go for 12000-14 with 200000+ miles on them so spending a few bucks on a tranny would be worth it.

yea, for 3,000 thats a steal with a blown trans. put a BTS in it and your only at 7500, which is still a steal with that kind of milage. put another 1000 into it with an intake, exhaust, and a chip and your stittin golden until you get the itch. HAHA
