What tranny to get?

I pulled out in front of some traffic today and I hit the go pedal pretty good. Whan the truck shifted in to second I was pulling a conciderable amount of boost (about 25psi) and the tranny just went pop. I could not get the truck to move in Drive or Reverse after that. I think the torque converter blew up but I probaly should just get a new tranny. I have nearly 200k on the stock tranny.

I am looking for recomendations. I know I am in a pinch with the holiday coming up next week. I'd like the truck to be moving agian by next wekend but I am not sure if that is going to happen at this point. I have a 2000 Excursion, I have a TS 6 pisition chip, 4" exhaust and an intake. I'd like a tranny that could take much more power than what I am putting out right now though.

Manual tranny? Who has done the swap? Can it be done? Should I stick with the auto?

Stick with the auto - lots cheaper and it can be built pretty cheaply.

Brians looks sweet, any clue at how much I am looking at for a tranny and converter from them? I was also looking at suncoast, they are pretty pricy. I was hoping to stay below 3k but it does not look that way right now.

cant give you any good places to get one but i can give you some good avise for instaling it make sure you flush the begezes out of the tranny cooler and the lines running to it! small metal pieces can be floating around in there and when you hook it up to your new tranny your pumping those tranny destroying particles right back into your new tranny.
