BTS Upgrade

Is the BTS valve body a good one? Will it hold up to stage 1's and a Tony chip.

I don't have experience with BTS, I use sonnaxx in mine, but IMO any VB improvement is a plus if your trans is in otherwise good condition.

Any good VB will help out. I have stage 1's and a chip, and the tranny is holding the power just fine, and I can light up the tires in 2nd gear from a roll (my tranny only has 40k miles on it). A good TC would be a wise choice too.

But one thing I can't help but say.. 55k miles?! Where the hell did you find that?! I saw a '97 7.3 in the local CL about a week ago with 47K ORIGINAL miles. If only I had the money...

Wow low mileage, lucky you. A aftermarket or modified VB will get rid of the car like features these transmissions are famous (er I mean infamous) for which is always a plus at any mileage.

i have a BTS VB in my truck and a PHP chip... had 118k when i put it in and i love it. i had a chattering shift and it firmed it right up. it will vastly make you trans last longer and if you combo it with a TC it should last a long time. there was no sence for me to do it cause im at the point where i might as well let it die and then build it up.

another one to check out is john wood transmissions.... i would call them both and see who offers you the aswers to what you want and go form there.

I was after this truck for 6 years, and finally got it. The man I bought it from bought it new and barely used it. The truck never saw any weather and was garage kept. The only upgrades I've done so far is 3" DP and 4" exhaust, gauges, and Tymar intake. I plan on doing the BTS upgrade, IDM mod, and stage 1'swith Tony chip. Have to check fuel presure before FPR mod. What do you guys think

Sounds like a good plan.

You are one lucky man sir... I wish I could have found a 55k miles OBS. Hell I bought mine with 193k. Not that I'm complaining, because it runs like a raped ape and hasn't given me one issue, but a low mile truck like that would be awesome

At 55,000 miles you wont need the FPR mod, there is no way the spring is wore out
