manual to auto? maybe....

so i know this sounds stupid because people are always looking to swap a auto to manual but i have been looking for a good clutch for my 2002 f350 6speed i have done so far to it is dp 140 agressive tuner, 4intch turbo back exhuast, wikit wheel and a banks ram air. The only one i can find so far that will fix my needs is a clutch worth about 1700 (give or take) south bend dual disk... but then i dont know what the transmission can take the sled pulling and hot rodding and i have been looking into this for about a month now...

so my question would it be worth to buy a auto that has been built up or just find a stock 4r100 and send it off to be built
or
just rock the manual tranny that has currently a slipping clutch due to the mods and the 200,000 miles on it and throw the southbend clutch in it and it could maybe last?

Thanks, bare with me i am still new to all of this!

I have never seen anyone destroy the 6spd, only the clutch.... So i'd stay with the 6spd.

I am thinking of doing the same. I have about 1200 into clutch and it is now poping. Just fixed the tranny and a month later it started poping. So if I would have to buy another clutch I think I will just swap it to an auto and be done with all of the pain. But I'll go with a full build tranny. Good luck whith everthing man.

hmmm, this is a big decision for me of what i should do.. but i am hoping i won't be the first to grenade the tranny lol.. i was talking to south bend and i told him what i had done to the truck and he gave me a model number for a clutch that is meant for 400 hp. I also told him that i want to do pulls and he said "OH", lol. He told me to go with the a dual disc clutch.

I hope that the guy with the white 6spd reads this post and gives me his 2 cents about the predicament i am in

Thanks

Get a good clutch and that 6 speed will handle whatever you want to throw at it. There are quite a few 500+ trucks out there with a stock 6 speed and a good clutch...

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..
