After market transmission suggestions

My stock transmission on my 6.4L gave in today. It's now at the shop and is getting a new tranny. Anyone have experience with built trannys in there 6.4? I need something that can handle being driven hard and will be reliable.

Any recommendations are good. Suncoast? Ats? Help me out! Thanks

Have it rebuilt with suncoast parts save some money. Don't gotta buy the biggest tq converter and don't need shafts by the sound of it. Shop around for a rebuild tho some shops you minus well order it off suncoast them selves.
1st recommendation suncoast rebuild or order one
2nd used Allison conversion

A guy near me has a fully built suncoast in his 10 inch Harley. He abuses it and runs high tunes and it seems to be holding up

You could call Brian and get the parts from him and have your shop put them in.
