torque converter

I have a 2002 f350 ccsb 4x4 looking to rebuild my transmission, I plan on 400hp at most. What torque converter do you guys run or recommend. I already have the john wood valve body in a box waiting. I will be rebuilding it with ford clutch plates. I can't afford a bts right now, so im going to do it the hard way. I've done a few already, still holding at stock levels.

If you are rebuilding the trans, add a clutch in the low /reverse drum, replace the upshift modulator with a .427 $30 and I use a different solenoid block, it allleviates the problems associated with 99-up torque converter engagement/ failures. Around $200. Those are excellent upgrades& with a billet converter is a large improvement over a stock tranny for little $$$

hey, can I use the modulator valve with the john wood valve body? Also, where did you get the solenoid valve assembly? Is it modified?

good post for sure..

one poster recommended to "use a different solenoid block, it alleviates the problems associated with 99-up torque converter engagement/ failures"


The original posted stated "he had john wood valve body in a box waiting"

another poster said,," if you use John Woods valve body just install it.. everything is included..

Is that to mean the upgraded solenoid block is a part of the valve body modified my JW and no need to change anything else short of clutches etc. ??

just asking as I am looking to get a JW VB for my 03 SD with 168K miles on stock 7.3L and no real issues, ie shifts ok, no noise etc to help the stock transmission go longer..

Right now low to no heavy towing, but that might change in 2-3 yrs when we get ready to go full time RVing.

call up and get one from John if you can. I wouldn't run a pi converter... They have been having some issues here lately. My last one lasted 40 miles.
