I just recently purchased a Suncoast tranny for my 7.3. Best thing ever. I went there and picked it up and got the grand tour of their setup. EXCELLENT group of people there. I got everything I could need for my tranny minus an intermediate and output shaft.Torque converter,valve body,all clutch counts increased,transgo tugger,6.0 cooler,mag-hytec pan,billet input,.427 shift valve and some other things here and there for nice price. They said it doesnt need any special fluid or anything. Just regular ATF. I was at the NADM event yesterday and made 5 trips back to back down the strip and my tranny temp gauge barely touched 140. 4 wheel drive launches. 100000 mile warranty as well. IMO it was money well spent.

I'd run the BTS over the suncoast any day. Last I knew a BTS 5R110 will run you $4100 plus tax and fluids (including converter) and installed for free if you take your truck to Brian's shop in Lead Hill AR. He'll have you out of there in one day. Also there is a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty no matter how hard you beat on it. After the 2 years is up Brian will still work on it free of charge, but you have to pay shipping both ways. Give them a call and ask any questions you have. They're decent people and don't hide anything. They'll tell you anything you want to know.
