Built transmission

Alright guys you help me out before I need help on this now too. I'm look for someone or somewhere and builds good transmissions. Running stage 1 single shot injectors with the TS custom programmer that's it for now on power. But I'm looking at running stage 2 with 38r turbo and going up to 37s for tires. I pull a 25" gooseneck a couple of times a month just like pulling a boat couple times a month. I do a lot of daily driving and I have a foot is a little heavy. I was looking at getting the BD performance one but I really don't want to spend $4500. So hopefully somebody out there in the Florida area can help me out here.. thanks

Yeah, I wouldn't use BD or sun coast.

BTS has a 2 year warranty, but he has the best customer service I've ever heard of and will take care of you even after the warranty. There is also John wood, Warren diesel, twisted diesel, racer x. These are the only ones I would EVER install in my truck.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.

Is there negatives to sun coast? I don't know anything about them, or anything about transmissions at all really. I just have a buddy that swears they are the best thing ever.

I've heard of a lot of guys having failures multiple times with sun coast and having to cut their losses and buy a different trans or torque converter.

Honestly I like warren, that's who I'm going to use. price compared to what you get with them is pretty sweet.

He probably hasn't tried the others. Just cause they advertise a lot means nothing.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

Bingo, I'd also assume the guy drives a dmax or cumminGs.
