Supporting Mod Question

I am looking at getting rosewood stage twos, and I understand the tranny takes a beating. Well I have a jasper rebuilt tranny with a shift kit. Does the shift kit help out or do i absolutely need a torque converter?

The shift kits helps but you do need a TQ converter. Even with a TQ converter and shift kit the trans isn't going to have a long life with stage 2s if driven hard.

Jasper isn't know for being strong....

You will also need a elect fuel system
Big turbo..modded H2e kit best.
Head studs
Valve springs
Better HPOP..SRP1.1
custom tunes
Better filter..Tymar
Exhaust.
Intercooler will be a must
BTS trans..

Eventually I was going to do e fuel and a d66. Head studs to my understanding won't be needed until about 45 psi, remember its a 7.3l were dealing with. My exhaust is fine. 3"dp to 4" to 6" stack. What filter are you.talking about? And intercooler eventually also. I'm in between a t500 hpop or a d66 turbo for the first supporting mod. Can't afford both.

I don't need to remember I only mod 7.3 engines....You can pop head gaskets at less than 45psi..plus you can easily make 45 with stage 2's....but its your risk.

K&N's are not for turbo diesels..you need a big Donaldson filter.

I would listen to what cary says, he knows his chit. And that jasper won't hold up. I would go with a known, trusted valve body unless you know what is in there, and also a good TC (pi stallion, dpc, or I know cary offers some others too) to give it a fighting chance.
