95 F-350 2wd Transmission

I want to put in a new transmission that can handle quite a bit more horsepower over stock without going over 4500$. My truck is also an automatic can I get it converted to a manual at a transmission shop? Im new to the powerstroke world and just learning my way around diesels. Im going to be going to NTCC next year to get my Diesel Mechanic Specialization Certificate. ... But I still have alot to learn.

What are your goals power wise and intended use of the truck? There are some options like the HD version of the automatic from Ford that are within your price range. For the manual swap you are going to have to find a ZF5 from a 7.3 2wd truck or adapt a ZF6 from a 99-03 7.3 to fit. There are several writeups around but besides the transmission you will need the crossmember, drive shaft, pedals and master/slave.

I think your going about this wrong. You can get 500hp out of the truck but you can't use that much towing without burning something up, not to mention your not safe with that load. If your primary goal is towing then I would look into a intercooler, 160/30 injectors, electric fuel, gauges and a tuner. On a tow tune for that weight you will be under 300hp usable and will have to keep a close eye on the EGT gauge.

It wouldn't take much to make your transmission handle the power but that weight will make for a short life span on any transmission. Either a rebuild of your transmission with a good TC, VB and upgraded cooler or a manual with a good clutch will work.
