aftermarket trans

Who makes the best aftermarket auto trannies, tc's, and parts. I think I'll start getting all the parts together now instead of having to come up with the money all at one time. I'm running 35" (soon to be 33") tires with a superchips max micro tuner, and an 18k mod. I've got 74k miles on my truck so I figure sometime between now and 100k I'll have to rebuild it. Also, do superchip programmers change shift points, and is there anything I can do now to prolong the life of my tranny now?

Well if you check my sign you might see me being a little partial.BD does not sell internal parts but do sell Converters ,accumulater bodies separate. These and other pricing are avaiable on line.
Your tunner should address shift points,but adding a BD pressure loc will increase line pressures during lockup and increase life of transmission.

There's always a debate on who makes the "best" built automatic. If you're going to build for big power, go built. If you're just going to stick with a few mods like your chip, and other low dollar upgrades then you'd be fine with a converter and valve body upgrade. Other than that if you built the tranny to handle earth moving power it's senseless to just pull pebbles with it.

We raise line pressure in the trans to firm the shift , and raise shift points based on throttle postions.
I hope this helps.

Can't go wrong with Suncoast and NADP. Both have done me great!

Tanks for all the info. Yeah, no need to build it for 1500ftlbs, but I would like to be just a little overkill. I guess I get that from building rock crawlers. However, I will be pulling a 10000gvw 24' goose with two well built suzuki samurai's. I figure the sami's will probly go 3000lbs a piece. So I guess that puts me towing roughly 10000lbs + or -.

10k hooked up behind your rig even in a stock tranny is about average load I think and not near the capacity...basically a built auto would just laugh and wonder when it's going to get a real load..

ATS trannys are pricey but awesome..although ive read that with them one needs to get the billet intermediate shaft as well as input and output...NADP heavy haulers are awesome too...for instance, their 11 second Dodge that used one. BD makes full trannys too i believe unless my eyes were decieving me...just shop around and ask around.

This is what Harald from BD said they have for trannies....I haven't been on their site recently so I don't know if they sell full trannies or not...
