It depends on what you have. Since this is a general discussion forum and you don't have a signature with any truck info, we can't make any assumptions. Is it a 4R100 or 5R110?

You have the 4R100, some say, if you watch your tranny temps and do regular services on it, you are good for up to 400 hp. A BTS valve Body is recommended by many if you have done some mods to your truck. Of course you will aslo want a new torque converter.
A BTS transmission is your best bet. I think the valve body is around 300 dollars and the transmission is about 3800
If you are a competent mechanic, you can buy a SunCoast rebuild kit for 500 and a new torque converter around 1400. This will give you one helll of a good transmission for the least amount of money. Check out Blackwidowdiesel.com for those parts.

its a 4R100.... you can beef a lot of parts up on this it all just depends how high you want to go and how much you want to spend.... some alto clutches, 3disc torque converter, and a sonnax shift kit or Valve body to start would be great..... that prob would run aroun 2k-2.5k after that you can get a full beefed up tranny from Brians truck shop or suncoast for around 4k-6k depending on how much hp your planning to put out....

That's cool. I wasn't trying to be nasty or anything like that, we just need to at least know what you are driving. You've been given some good advice so far.

On a budget and if you aren't making big horsepower, I would recommend a larger transmission oil cooler and maybe even a large pan like a Magtec. Heat is the biggest enemy of an auto tranny. The next "cheap" step up would be a valve body. It all depends on how much hp and how hard you want to run it.
