Which Tranny to choose

I need to have a little poll of my own. Just blew my tranny on my 2003 and I am going to spend the money on something but not sure who is the best. Please guys only answer if you have a built tranny, ex BTS ,Suncoast, ATS etc please give your reasons and if you changed your convertors also

I don't have any of those brands, as I have a built one from a local builder. But from what I have heard ATS is bad news. There's lots of threads on here about them, and I have a couple of guys here in town that have blown them up......

Sun coast is an alright transmission based on posts on here.

BTS is the end all transmission, PERIOD. ask anyone about BTS and all you get is that they are the best. Hands down.

BTS has been great to me!. I drove from Colorado To Lead Hill; well worth the experience. The tranny can be shipped though. I like the fact if you bring it to Brian, he can change things there if need be. Mine ran like a dream. I recently put in bigger injectors, turbo, etc; so I need to fine tune the tranny now. Brian told me this would have to be done and its a fairly simple process.
Brian is always willing to answer questions and help you out when you call.
The tranny is money well spent IMO. You will be amazed at the difference.
