Best trans for my future mods

My 4r100 has been slipping in second at random times and has now gotten to where in town I must shift on the colum to get past second gear
Therefore I want to upgrade my trans but not sure if I Should rebuild this one or go suncoast or bts??
Truck has 235k miles..4 inch lift and 35's
I'm replacing injectors at the same and wanting to use stage 2 injectors then later on install a 38r
Just wanting to know what will be the best trans for my future setup

BTS will NEVER let you down, ungodly amounts of power, and what's the warranty?

Spend wisely my friend, do it once

not to thread hijack, as im basically wanting to do the same mods to my 7.3 38r and injectors down the road...


is the triple disk converter such as one from ats that worth the $1000 upgrade when going with jw or bts transmission?

ATS Diesel | Ford*7.3 Powerstroke

been thinking of going with john woods next year, either there street performance or tow master, not sure if they are overkill
John Wood Automotive - Services

bts had a 3 month waiting list the last time i called them. and i can get away with woods as a vacation to the beach with the fiancee HAHA.


my other option is a ford reman 4r100HD with the ats converter and jw/bts throttle body, but im not sure how that combo would hold up?

2002 F250 7.3/JW Tow master 4r100 200k miles
Mods:explorer heater valve, WR GP relay, RiffRAff boots, lariat overhead console, Hydra chip, 6637 mod, 6.0 cooler, AIH delete and isspro2 trans, egt, and boost gauges. 92 gallon aux tank with a total capacity of 130gallons, 1800 mile range , 4" MBRP straight Piped. 2" Warrior shackles

In my local built trans, I added a ATS stage 5 TC to my build and had nothing but success. 4 years of work/abuse. Averaged over 20 pulls a season, hand full of drags and hooked to a gooseneck everyday in between.

Never skipped a beat during that whole time. Pulled apart over winter and still looked new without any cut fins
