Trans upgrade ???

Ok guys is it worth building my 4r100 or get a new trans built and installed or get a 5r100 trans installed on my 01 f350. i new to the trans upgrade department any info would be great. I will be having a shop do any and all of the work so im not sure what would be better for the long run and cost wise.

A built 4R is way better. And would probably be cheaper because you would need adapters as well as a completely custom standalone TCM.
