My stock trans just bit the dust at 171,000. the case is cracked beyond welding repair, so for a new case, and basically all new HD guts and TC the shop quoted 3400 for everything, ive seen HD trans go for much more but still seemed steep for a rebuild... any suggestions or comments?

ATLAS Transmission is the company building it but the actual builder is a fellow Powerstroke enthusiast, and the price is including thats removal rebuild and install, and a new case also... i dont know much about trans components, but from what ive gathered, its HD clutches (or springs?), sprags, input/output shafts, TC, and tugger kit. ill find out exact parts tomorrow and let yall know

I cant imagine what they want for the case! Might be cheaper to find an unknown unit at a junkyard and have that rebuilt.

My last rebuild with upgraded valve body cost me $2200 installed. Add on a little for the scrap yard transmission and youre still under $2500 with a warranty. $3500 will get you close to the Ford HD install which is substantially better and $4500 plus labor gets you to the best.

Whats your budget?

oh i forgot your housing is busted so you don't get any core refund, so 5500 for you to get a bts
