Canadian Performance e4OD options?

I have been researching for a while now for a new tranny and torque converter for my truck. I have just under 400k on my truck which is sporting I believe to be the original stock tranny. I have looked at BD, and NAPC. Before everyone starts shouting John Wood and Brian's Truck Shop, there are logistical issues/costs to deal with bringing it over the border as well, so I would like to deal with a Canadian company, which is why I was originally looking towards a BD unit. If I was located in the States, there would be no question, buuut......... Anybody that has one in thier truck and lives north of the border, please let me know how difficult or easy it was to get one of their products up here.

My end goal is to be making in the neighbourhood of 450 hp with my daily driver/tow rig. I spend a fair amount of time in the mountains as well so lots of long pulls on a regular basis. I've done guages, e fuel, 1.0 turbine housing with wicked wheel 2 going in this weekend, less than a year on stock sticks, in addition to the mandatory exhaust and intake. Intercooler and chip coming as well, but right now the focus is tranny.

Thanks in advance to anyone providing insite.

a lot of the bling billlet parts that the US shops use are TCS items from Langley
I have been in BD and their shop is pretty impressive. if I had the $$ and wanted a prebuilt that is probably where I would end up

TCS stuff looks killer. I've been thinking of a prebuilt trans to limit the downtime.

Does anybody have one of NAPC's Heavy Hauler tranny in their OBS? How does it compare with BD's unit? Any particular reason the BD trans is so much more $?

95 Ext Cab F250
Dana 60 Swap
MBRP Turbo Back Exhaust
AFE Stage 2 Intake
Stock Injectors
1.0 Turbo Housing with Wicked Wheel 2
Bar None E-fuel kit
Bar None Bellowed Up Pipes
Isspro Guages
2 Rigid Industries 30 SRLs (worth every penny!)
All sittin on 35" Toyo Muds

So much more planned as $ allow!!

I had a Napc heavy hauler 4r100 in my superduty. It seemed to work pretty awesome. Although when i sold the truck the guy called and told me it blew up when he was driving through alberta. I did not get my tdp chip reburned for the transmission so that could of been the cause.


If i got another auto built i would try to get it down south of the border.

Although wouldnt it be way more cost effective to swap in a zf-5. Even if you bought a brand new clutch, flywheel, master and slave cylinder assembly etc you would still spend a lot less than a built auto. Its bolt in too.
