tranny

i have a 99 psd with a stock c6 with over 210,000 miles. i am the second owner of the truck. The original owner kept it stock and pulled a gooseneck trailer of cattle throughout the state. i baught the truck with over 170,000 miles. since i baught it i added intake, exhaust and a buddy gave me his superchip. will a tw chip with gauges blow out my tranny or should i add a shift kit or just buy it anyways?

I think it would be safe to say that the more power you add, the shorter she will live with those miles. Also depends on your driving habits. With the miles on it, might want to consider a rebuild along with the shift kit if ya can. Just my opinion tho.

you shouldnt have a problem... but like shane said... your stock trans is only really built enough to handle stock power if even that lol.... any performance upgrade will put stress on stock components.. unfortunately for anyone with a 99-03 7.3L that means the trans.... tony will raise the line pressure with his tunes to help keep it alive as much as possible but their is no gurantee that it wont go out... mine went out on me at 70k lol... but i drive my truck hard most of the time (this was with an edge product) i run the TW chip on my truck now... also do you have any gauges yet? i would highly suggest some with any programmer/chip you install... the stock trans gauge is a dummy light.... you need to be accurately reading your temps

let us know if you have any other questions or if you need prices on the chip, gauge or a package deal on both
