Ok, you can cut and paste the info as well. And someone can come in behind you and cut and paste numerous threads about "rebuilds" failing at 20-30-50k.
...even on stock trucks.
And 3-5K doesn't really mean you get a bullet proof trans. I have a bit of money tied up in mine, but I've bought parts from BTS, John Wood, and DI. The trans was assembled by DI (closer to me) after long conversations about what I wanted. My truck doesn't always put out maximum power. Rarely do I take it out of daily tune. Driving around town, hauling the ATV and equipment to the deer lease, or pulling a '35 TT.
If you are DETERMINED to build a trans, do yourself a favor and pay attention.
Sonnax accumulator parts. Do not go above the .347 (I think). I have a .427 (I think, I have a lot of details written down at home). They go all the way to .500. This is stupid and most trucks will shift like crap.
You can use the Trans-go plate. to help to the valve body with the Sonnax parts, but it's a moot point. Build the trans to be tough, tune shifting characteristics within the tuning. BTS uses the plate, John Wood and DI usually doesn't. Stay away from FTVB's. I don't like them at all.
Stay away from alto reg eagle clutches and steels. They are crap. Use only Borg-Warner clutches and steels.
