Unhappy New tranny???

My buddy tried to pull too much weight behind his 01 f-250 powerstroke/auto. It has a mild chip on it,(5 stage knob??), but pretty mild. It puked a little tranny fluid on the road and gave a good puff of smoke from the tranny area. He refilled the tranny, but on the way back to the farm shop it was sluggish on takeoff, (like a stall converter). Later he tried to leave the farm shop he only made it halfway up the driveway and then had nothing. The truck has 150,000mi, and most likely a stock tranny. Should he just plan on getting a new tranny. What extra parts does he need, where to get it done??
Thanks,
Brock

My trans went out at about 75k miles. Towing a 35foot fifth wheel tore up my trans. Ended up going with a suncoast because the stock trans is pretty weak. Had 186k on the truck when I sold it and the trans was still as solid as new.

I have a complete billet tranny in my truck. but this kid isnt wanting to turn up his truck any more, But im not for sure that something like a billet cap converter wouldnt be a good idea.

My truck was pretty much stock at the time except for an intake and exhaust when the trans went out. I just think the trans is the weak link on that truck. If he puts it back to a stock trans he will be back in the same boat down the road.

How would a stock rebuild work if it had a billet cap on the converter, with a extra cooler, and a valve body upgrade?
