I have yet to hear any negative comments on them. Personally I have no experience with them.

Good trannies but you might be able to get more bang for your truck.

Check out brianstruckstop.com

Also look at ATS and maybe more "local" builds if you're not going to be pushing over 500 rwhp.

I guess since I got DJ on my side I'll elaborate.

I would go to BTS and get my tranny, but I'll never make the kind of power that would warrant it. For that matter I won't make the power for an ATS/Johnwoods/Suncoast either!

I am however doing what Shane did (sea71) and I'm getting a guy that specializes in E40D and 4R100's to rebuild mine with "500" hp in mind. I'll never come near that, but at least I know I'll be safe with my build!

i agree with marty....dont pay for something like an over the top tranny and not use it to its full potential.... just rebuild it with a new TQ and a shift kit and you should be good....

i'll say this,if you plan on shooting into the 500hp range go with the stage 4 or stage 5 tranny with the big converter and do it right the first time instead of doing it later,but if you plan on satying in the high 300hp and even into the low 400hp save some money do a stage 3 tranny with a bigger then stock converter..just my thoughts

LOL, this coming from a guy that buys 6k in parts alone for his tranny. You kill me raul.

the bts is an awesome tranny, sucoast is to their just proud of them. weather you tow or have 900hp you can benefit from a well built tranny. By the time you buy the parts an have some garage monkey try to build it right you could have a full built trans..... if it was me and i would by nothing else but a bts for your ford. Now if you had a dmax it would be suncoast no doubt

Just my .02 .

I run an ATS in my Dodge, complete trans with convertor and billet input shaft and ATS trans deep sump pan. I think ATS, Suncoast, BD, are all similar in what they do. I'm running about 325 to 350 hp in mine and the trans if built for more power than that but I know I don't have to worry about it when I'm pulling something.
