Tranny anyone?

This is kinda for 6.0's but reading through people sig's it looks like they have a lot of engine mods and they leave there programmers tuned up but they don't say anything about there torqshifts. Yesterday I was racing around town and the tranny is flaring and poping into gear. I'm not going to take it to the dealer since this is my 3rd tranny that has already been rebuilt within 40k miles. Does anyone have or occur any problems with there trannies or is this just a normal thing with these's pieces of junk.

Also to since the last rebuild the engine will surge in o/d and if I'm pulling up a hill and floor it my tow/haul light will start flashing. I'm just waiting for it to blow apart so I can get another tranny.

For the next few months yet Suncoast is the only soarce for the 5R110 clutch/steel upgrades. For now you can call on us or any other suncoast to price you a complete trans or a parts and pieces kit to build your own. Also, Trans-Go is 1-2 months out on a hydraulic upgrade.... I just spoke with them yesterday. So coming soon will be cheap and easy 5R110 upgrades like what we have for the 4R100 now. Just keep that puppy limping along..... or go Suncoast if you got to upgrade now.

Well I purchased the extended warranty plan on my tranny so I am going to use that until it's up and then maybe I'll get a built tranny or a new truck. I have 41K miles now so I'll see how many trannies the warranty plan pays for.
