450 HP and stock trans, not good, any built trans is better than a stock trans when the truck in modded.

JW or BTS get my vote. If it was a 6.0 I would use suncoast as an option

I'm running the Suncoast extreme rebuild kit and a John Wood converter, billet input shaft and valve body in my tranny. Been holding 550hp for over 20,000 miles now.

If I had the choice and the money, it would've been full John Wod tranny though.
