You cant beat BTS's warranty. I have heard some bad things about ATS customer service. No matter how long you have your BTS Brian will always take care of you.

My main reason is b/c I'm from about 30-45 minutes away and i've met Brian and Cale several times, been around the shop and stuff.

I've heard plenty of stories how Brian goes out of his way to stand behind the product and resolve any issues that come up. I never bought a transmission product off him at all, and had mainly dealt with Cale for tuning and repairs on my 6.0. Well, my trans started acting up(im 1200 miles away) and I gave Brian a call, he diagnosed it over the phone and even walked me thru replacing that solenoid in the trans. That alone shows a level of respect and service you may not find elsewhere.

350 and 700? Stock reman with a good converter and valve body will do everything you need it to IMO. If you'll want more later then go with the BTS. I don't have any personal experience with either, but I've never seen a single bad customer service complaint about BTS. Seen a lot over the years with ATS. BTS is a small family owned business too.

Exactly what I was thinking. Could probably get by with just a triple disc converter alone. And firm up line pressure via tuning or a valve body.

Typical cummins owner.

Another good thing about BTS is they wont sell you something you dont need. They just threw in a converter and valve body for my cousins 7.3L instead of selling him a full build.


Give em a call they'll set you up.
