Wow, this forum is the best I've found for the wealth of information on Powerstrokes and beyond! A future thanks to all the info I'll be dredging up.
I don't own my baby yet, (still saving) but I am looking for a
01-03 F250 7.3L 4x4 Crew w/ short box. (preferably blue and from a dry climate)
So, whenever I find the magical combo of exactly what I want, I plan on saving extra to put in a built transmission before I start doing performance mods and upgrading the exterior aesthetics.
My roommate is my resident mechanical guru and he's a mopar guy, he's suggested to me a Goerend built tranny as the best of the best, but we don't quite know if Goerend does a built 4R100, but I've heard (around here and others) that he does Ford stuff occasionally on the side and I found an ad (on this site) for a sold 7.3L Ford Excursion that the guy said he had a Goerend 4R100 in it.
+Does anyone know if Goerend does a built 4R100 and if not, what are my other top-shelf built tranny options?
+Not up on the lingo either, and what is an "OBS" ?
+Any other immediate upgrades to stock parts that I should do after I buy it? More because they're probably worn out or nearly worn after 100K+miles that will probably be on the truck I end up with.
Sorry for the book, THANKS guys!
