Thumbs up Thinking of getting a new Trany?

I'm thinking about getting a beefed up trany for my truck. How do I find out what trany I have? I have a 2000 F350 Crew cab with 7.3 and auto trany. I've head there are two tranies, I know I have overdrive. Is there a tag on the trany it's self, or is there another way to tell. My truck has 130,000 miles and I just got an edge evolution, 4" straight pipe from turbo back with no cat, or muffler, and I'm planning on doing the diy Tymar intake. I would like to replace the trany before it dies on me. Maybe I'm being a little to premature, maybe I don't need a trany yet, what do you guys think? Thanks for all your help.

You have the 4R100, I don't know of any other transmission behind the 99-03 7.3. A new torque converter and valve body or shift kit will make the tranny last a little longer. While you would be a little on the early side for a whole new tranny, it would not be a terrible idea. I would give BTS a call and they should be able to take care of you!

You maybe able to just do a good rebuild kit, and that way you would be set for more power in the future. I have heard many good things about BTS, and suncoast also.

BTS builds them to for 800-1000 hp pulling trucks I think they will hold up on our dailys just fine. I love mine.

Thanks a lot guys, I'll hold off on a new trany and go with a torque converter and shift kit for now. Should I go with a low RPM stall or high RPM stall converter? Thanks for all the help.
