Tranny replacement? (7.3 Question)

My buddy called me this morning with a few questions. I'm a 6.0 guy and so I need you 7.3 boys to help me out!

Here goes- It's a 2000 7.3 crew cab long bed with a stock tranny. He tows a tri-axle toy hauler, 5th wheel. He says he feels a bit of slip and wants to upgrade while the truck is still running and not when it gives out going up hill. I was saying BTS Trannys, I've heard they're pretty good for the 7.3 trucks. But I told him I'd post up and get the real word from you guys!
He also wondered what he could get, price wise, for his stock tranny.

Thanks in advance guys!

BTS or John Wood. I swear by John but on your side of the US, I would say BTS because of the freight difference. Expect $3900 or so plus freight. You will not get anything for the stock trans since it is required for the core.

Keep Strokin'

Call Larry and see if he has all the parts in stock. You can get all the same parts that ATS, Suncoast, BTS, John Woods, and everyone else uses and have a local guy put it together. Ask shane...thats how his trany was done. There is no special magic installed by any of the others mentioned. Larry did the trans in his Excursion and it works fantastic. Plus you will be saving a TON of money. There is nothing wrong with having the others do it, but if your on a budget there are alternative to getting you the same thing. The problem is the 4R100 is such a problematic trany that its hard to keep parts on stock. Woods or BTS I'm sure stock multiple sets of everything. Just another option to think of. Make sure he puts a big cooler on it when he is done. Thats a big contributing factor to this tranys problems.
