Not sure about the stage 2's. I have a 38R, stage 1 160cc AC injectors, 4" turbo back, 6637 intake and a David Lott (Diesel Innovations) tune and this truck pulls like a freight train. If the road is the least little bit damp I can spin the wheels at 75. I'm very happy with this setup.

Well just depends on how heavy your right foot is with just that turbo on? As far as your tranny goes on lasting, who only knows really? Just depends on how much you beat on it really. I mean if your out doing 4 wheel launching with your truck, you might as well plan on spending some money on a built tranny. Actually i prolly would anyways, be a safer bet if you plan on gettin them stage 2's. I mean the 4r100's are the weak links with these trucks, call up BTS and go from there. You will need a tranny sooner or later.
