Well drove a 6.0 today..

I am a victim of the grass is always greener saying. I want a torqueshift so bad now, but I think I still like my 7.3 for reliability sake.

The TS is a GREAT trans. Heads and tails better than a 4R100. At least in stock form....

Why? i have heard WAY more 4r100 failures than 5r110... Torqshift hands down better to handle 500 hp

I drive both and I like the 4R100 better. It has a spring valve body rather than one with an electronic valve body. I like mechanical setups better than electronic.

I said downfalls not worse than. From reading on this site I read a lot of 5R110 failures happening at lower mileage than 4R100's. I've broken two 5R110's with stock tuning both within 20K miles. I drive a F450 with a 4R100 and always tow with that truck and drive it hard and the tranny has not gave one glitch.

Sorry I have to disagree with you here. The TS is a much stouter trans in stock form and can take WAY more abuse and power put through it than the 4R100

Not mine. Have you driven both 4R100 and 5R110?

My 4r100 doesn't seem to like 3rd gear, and it takes a little while to engage from reverse to forwards, visa versa. I only have 95K on the rig. Im terrified of needing a new tranny soon

Not trying to pic a fight with ya but its just not true that a 4r100 is a stronger trans. They are famous for burning up with people who haul heavy. I burned my first one up at 70K in my 98 F-350 towing a 16' haulmark loaded with about 7k of outdoor goods to trade shows in the west. It only took another 50k to burn another. I went through 3 with that truck. 7.3 bullet proof, 4r100 not so much. My 04 is at almost 90K and pulls about 16k. That's about 25k combined and runs like a charm. Have never had issue one with the TS. It has tow control that helps with the load in grades and an extra gear to get it all moving down the road. Much, much better trans to me anyway....
