Question TCI Transmissions

I want to know more about TCI transmissions. In all due respect, I know BTS, John Wood, etc. are all great names, but that's all I ever hear about. I've got tons of Diesel Power & Diesel World magazines with ads for TCI & their website. I've visited the website(tciauto.com) & just like all other big name brands(as mentioned above) all you read is "these parts are great this", "this trans is great that"--- just like everyone else. Basically what I've been reading in their ads & online, you're looking @ the same stuff that anyone who builds a valve body, billet TC, rebuild or shift kit, & fully-built transmission is selling. So like every brand name, there have to be pros & cons for TCI compared to their competition. If the pros outweigh the cons, maybe I'd buy TCI parts or a built trans & be a little different. The only person on the .Org I've noticed that has TCI anything is GMDuraturd, & knowing him from being on the .Org, he isn't the type that would just slap any old thing on his truck. So TCI has to be @ least 1/2 way or better decent.

Anyone who's had any experience with or know people that've had good luck/bad luck with TCI, let's hear your best & worst. I want the truth. If there's any type of bashing on TCI, I don't care to hear it as I can't stand shooting galleries on any product no matter how bad they may be. Just give me hard facts without defacing the product.

For now, guys, your best bet to get an idea of what they have or can do is check out their website. They don't have built 4R100s listed on their site, but I contacted them & they said they're either available, or you can send your transmission in for a build. I'm sure it's expensive either way, but if you're getting a good bang for your buck & can stray from the crowd with the same results, it's definitely worth it.

TCI

EVER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER HAVING AN INTEREST IN FAST CARS, SINCE THE EARLY 1970'S, TCI HAS BEEN ON THE FOREFRONT OF HIGH PERFORMANCE TRANSMISSIONS AND DRAG RACING.

THEY WERE THERE , WAY BEFORE ALL OF THOSE OTHERS!!!

I just have a tranny cooler from TCI and it has worked great so far, granted a cooler cant really fail. TCI is a big name in drag racing with good respect. Go to your local strip and ask the Pro Stock or any door slammer what transmission parts they use and it will probably be TCI. I have no idea what their diesel transmissions are like and have never actually seen one behind a powerstroke.
