My experience with a 4R100 is that is a good transmission. I run a HyperTech programmer. I have run it normally on the 100HP setting. Runs good. Most of my driving is Daily, but I do pull a 5th wheel and the additional power helps. As to the transmission, it held up well. I've had the truck 17 years, 282k. @275k, I had to have the original trans rebuilt. That was after running the programmer most of those 17 years. After a 1000 mile break-in, I reprogrammed the truck and it's been fine as well. I AM 66 - so I don't romp on it - although once-in-awhile, some of my younger years come out and I mash the pedal. All has been good.
