Id go with a Sam wyse stage 1 or 2 depending how much hp youre pushing. Stage 1 is plenty for a chipped truck

my truck is completely stock the only thing that has been done to it is a kc turbo installed and it was just one size up from stock. i do not plan on doing any chips or HP pains and i DEFINITELY do not want a stick shift.

so this is the deal. i've only had the truck a month and i've only drove it twice so i dont know much about it. when i bought the truck it had a roaring noise to what i thought was the turbo but turns out its a cracked fly wheel. i changed the turbo (thinking it was the problem) but when i get on it it makes a load squeeling noise and doesnt seem to have very much power seems like to me. but if i drive it easy it shifts smooth and easy. im thinking its the Torque Converter what do you guys think?

I just had the transmission replaced in my 1999 F350 dually. It had the original with almost 260,000 miles on it. I got one from Street Smart transmissions. No core charge if you send the old one back in 30 days. Like yours, mine is primarily used to pull a fifth wheel.

I had a sam wyse stage 2 and liked it. A stage 2 is overkill for your application though. I would get a stage 1 and save the extra money.
