Question Which parts??

Hey guys im a newbie to all this trans stuff and am having a very hard time deciding what trans to put in my truck.

First off I will do a little bit of towing with it but only like 10,000lbs max and not that often, no plow but i would like to do a chip and some light mods. I would like to stay on a budget but not so cheap that I am putting a new trans in it again very soon.

I am leaning towards a 6.0 31 row trans cooler for sure, and a BTS valve body with a 6.0 torque converter and a stock rebuild kit....

What do you guys think from your experience? and also does anyone know where i can get the conversion kit for the 6.0 torque converter besides john wood he doesnt make them anymore... and where the cheapest place to get a trans cooler is?

Thanks a lot guys I really appreciate any help

Jordan

We have the 6.0 Tq converters and can get you the BTS VB. We also have TS chips with TW's custom tunes and Isspor guages. PM if I can help.

would a used 6.0 trans cooler be okay to buy if i flushed it before the install and maybe even put an inline filter in on the output side or should i only buy new?

Whats the advantage of the 6.0L tq? I'm about to dig into my tranny and probably get a new tq.

What is the advantage of the 6.0 TC vs. one made for the 7.3 with triple clutches?

If you did flush out that old cooler REALLY good and make sure you have a filter setup between it and your trans you'd be ok. The Dieselsite trans setup is awesome. I tried to build my own . . . I only saved MAYBE 50 bucks at this point. Probably less. The kit is worth it.
So 6.0 cooler. Might as well do the big 31 row one. BTS, John Woods, or Factory Tech VB. All good. And a 6.0 TC would be good. Of course you could go ahead and get the BTS TC too.
