BEST AFTERMARKET TRANSMISSION

I have an 01 f-250 and am wanting to get a new heavy duty transmission . MY existing tranny is still working but my overdrive light keeps flashing. I want a new tranny that will give me peace of mind when I am towing . What is the best aftermarket tranny out there? Best bang for the buck. Torque converter as well. thanks

If you're looking for amazing customer service, amazing reliability and performance, and simply something that's going to WORK and not give up on you, the only person I can suggest is BTS. He builds most of the trannies for the "big boys" that race and sled pull their 7.3's and he's got an amazing reputation. Mine is at his shop getting built as we speak.

Expensive? depends on how you look at it. a week after I got my truck the trans lost 2nd gear. I took it to a local shop and they said for 2200 they would rebuild it and for 2900 they would build it so its way strong. Not knowing any better I opted for the built version. After reading around I heard about BTS and many other trans goodies out there. I asked the shop for some names of the parts they put in and they could not give me any of that. All they said is your trans is way strong now. well If I could go back and do it again, I would have spent the 1k more and got the BTS trans and never worried about it again! you will not kill the BTS and if by some freak of nature you do, they will fix it for you.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Forget ATS. For a E4OD or 4R100, BTS is really the only way to go unless you want to spend the money twice like I did, with BTS you only buy once!

I had a local diesel shop build my tranny twice and after it breaking from the power the 2nd time I decided to cut my losses with the shop, and order a BTS. It's been a very very expensive lesson for me, but at least now I know that I will NEVER have a problem again with my tranny. BTS backs all his stuff 100%, and his customer service is the best in the business.

He's located in Arkansas and he builds trannies for guys all over the country. Heck, I'm in Massachusetts and I decided to give him my business rather than keep dealing with the diesel shop that was 35 min away from me... that should say something.
