Talking New found power with tranny woes solved!

well i bought my truck this past summer with 69K miles (75K now), and it seems in the last 2K miles i've been just dumping money into it fixing stuff (front u joints, front hubs and wheel bearings) well today i finally got my new converter and shift kit in. along with all new u-joints and carrier bearing for the driveshaft(s)
A trans guy i know that does a lot of high HP drag car stuff made me up a new billet triple disk converter for my truck and he also put a transgo tugger shift kit in it.

after an afternoon of wrenching everything got put in and i could finally click my TW chip up a couple notches and reap the glory i've been missing for a few weeks! (got my chip a few weeks ago and like a week after i ordered it my converter started shuttering and all together just being a piece-o-$hit. now it rides smooth like a caddy!

i'll load a couple pictures tomorrow! If i wasn't a broke college student i would have added a billet input shaft and some other upgraded hard parts but that'll have to wait until something else breaks

thats kind of a big no no puttin in a $1000 TC without upgrading the clutches and everything else. Because if you were to explode the tranny your TC is gunna be toast!

it helps when you're friends with a good trans guy A) things cost less (in total for all new Ujoints, shift kit and TC i spent about $780 yesterday), and B) he put in the upgraded snaprings and the clutches were still in great condition, you could still see the writing on the frictions...

well yeah in that case you probley are in good shape if you had a pro look at it. But you never know what could happen. If you were to explode the stock input shaft. BAM! your screwed. Cuz i was thinkin of doin the same to my stock 4r100 just put a upgraded TC and valve body and stuff but i dont want to risk blowing it up and it destroying everything else that I just put in.

I know what u mean im in the same boat being a broke ***. But im saying did you have to put these parts in the trans? If you didnt you should have just saved up till you had the money to do everything at once.

yeah my converter was shuttering and vibrating so bad change was rattling out of my cup holder, so it was pretty much a necessity. and replacing all the U-joints and carrier bearing was only another $120 or so since 2 of the 3 u-joints were pretty sloppy in my driveshaft.
