Found a local Trans builder!

I have a guy that does all of my exhaust work here in Colorado now for years. His work is GREAT and he doesn't charge me an arm and a leg. Down at his shop the other day, we get on the subject about me wanting to build my 01 7.3 PSD trans. He tells me of a buddy of his that built his, basically is a stage/level II for others I have seen. This guy will charge $3,100 for parts & RR. Now my question is, I was told he uses the 6.0 PSD converter. Anyone hear of this or is running one in their 7.3 If so, give me details of how it performs or if you just have knowledge of this. Thanks in advance!

I have heard of using the 6.0 converter in the 4R100's. It's supposed to be a pretty good upgrade. Look up Caryt or OBSWIZ from CT Performance. I know he's familar with this.

I've heard of a lot of guys doing this. I know physically it is larger, I think it is a multi-disk converter, with the same bolt pattern and input shaft as our 4R100's

If you are going to spend that much, why not just get a BTS tranny?

a bts is like 5500$ and the tranny this guy is talking about is 3100 $. That seems like quite a difference to me.
