Question Trany ???'s

I am rather new to my power stroke. I am growing to love it more every day that passes. I am just getting threw with doing some mods and some PMing and I am wondering what is a good way to add life to my auto trans and or maybe so extra performance. and also so has any one done a performance rebuild and if so what is cost on a kit and what special tools are needed if any ... any answer are greatly appreciated

A good valve body will help a lot. That and an external trans filter. If you wanted to rebuild it you could do that with a lot of good internals. That or get a BTS or John Woods build trans. You'll be set

what truck do you have? heat kills...thats the problem for a stockish truck. now cooling better isnt always the right fix. for ex; a bigger VB will keep the clutch packs from slipping so much therefore reducing heat.

1) Keep it cool, and 2) keep the shifts quick and firm.


1) 6.0 trans cooler, or an aftermarket unit

2) You can do this manually with a valve body or shift kit, or get custom tunes that bump line pressure up and control the shifts.

Yea probably. You can send it off to most of the custom tuners and they will put some good stuff on there. You can get just about the same power, maybe a little more, but it's SAFER. Cooler EGTs, better and safer shifting, etc.
