'02 TC Limits

Looking at an '02 Excursion w/ 100K on it. The vehicle is immaculate inside and out. I know the owner and he has taken really good care of it. I have one thing that worries me, and thats all the talk about the TC's being weak. He has a programmer that has, 50+, 100+, & 150+ HP settings. He says he keeps it in the 100 and loves it. Will I have any TC problems with any of these settings? What about if I added an exhaust sytem as well??

Well, depends how long he has had the tuner and how he drives... 100HP mod and no tranny changes is asking for trouble in the long run... A valve body or shift kit is really the way to go... Just did transgo on mine... My sister pulls a 3 horse GN and had a big improvment in hers after I told her to get a shift kit/ valve body done... not sure what one she used but went from doing 45mph to 65mph on same hill... truck is stock otherwise..... What brand of programmer... some are obviously better than others...

I did'nt see ??? diesel or gas?? Both converters are multi clutch but the diesel wears out faster because of the stronger pulsing of the eng. I wouldn't push either past 150,000 miles. An upgrade to a billett tc and a valve body kit at the same time would be good. Part of most v/body kits go in the pump which cannnot be installed unless the trans is removed.
