That is a great explanation.

I like suncoast. I have two friends with their transmission and they have not had a single complaint or problem. One has a dodge and the other has a f350. Both trucks were done at suncoast in fl. And if you notice, most people that build tranny's use suncoast internals.

I have personally seen to Suntoasts have issues. And have heard more stories.

ATS is just a sh!ty company to deal with.

BTS is just the best out there. Life time warranty you cant beat that.

I have a BTS also and it really shifts smooth. Brian also installs the 6.0 cooler and it keeps temps down. He and all the crew at BTS are all very good people and his son Cale has some nice tunes that work very well with the transmission. Truly the BEST warranty in the USA. This will be your last tranny you will ever buy when you get a BTS.

BTS hands down.

I have gone through 3 conveters at this point, but they're basically expendables at my power level. I've since moved onto a spragless conveter and have not had the issue, but I have to change my fluid every 1500 miles or so.
