Smile which one to buy

I am going to get a new torque converter and valve body and am wondring who makes the better ones. I heard ATS isn't all they're cracked up to be. I want one that will hold up for a long time with my tuner that I have already with room to grow. Has any one heard of http://www.dieselsite.com. Are they any good? All opinions are appreciated.

I would do a FTVB valvebody and for the TC I would use one out of a 6.0. For $400 they can't be beat. You must drill a couple holes but call John Woods he may sell you everything you will need. He has been doing the 6.0 TC for quite sometime and he knows his stuff.

Call John Wood, he will talk your ear off educating you on your transmission. John is good people.


I too have herd things about suntoast. Like the sound of a TC letting go at the last sled pull.......and the guts flying out the bottom of the transmission at the last drag race and making a mess that took half an hour for the track guys to clean up.

You will never find a suntoast product in any of my trucks. Suntoast, also, won't warranty their stuff in any kind of competition.

Keep Strokin'

thanks I'm not looking into sled pulls or anything, just want a solid driveline without spending an arm and a leg. I also don't see the need for me to overbuild. I'm looking to get into the 400h.p. range someday just not today.

I killed two transmissions at the 300hp level. The first one died at 73K and had a tricumulator valve and sonnex springs in the VB. The second one had a Dunrite transbuddy valve body and a DunRite TC in it and it lasted 71K.

I now firmly believe that there is no such thing as an over built transmission. Plus as I have added power upgrades, John has tweaked my trans to shift correctly with the addition of a couple hundred ponies since he built it, at no cost. You can't beat that kind of service right there. In fact he called me last week just to see how it was shifting after he tweaked it a little and say Hi.

You will love the 400hp mark. It really makes driving a truck FUN!!!
