Post Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

I am looking at upgrading my transmission here in the next few months, I have been reading on the web about the different options on transmissions and have just recently found out about NADP Trans.... I haven't not come across many people opinions or thoughts about BD, Suncoast, ATS, NADP, ect... and i was hoping on having some personal opinions on some of these transmissions, and I am more inclined on hearing them from people who have actually had them, not hear say...

I have also noticed though that there is one heck of a line drawn on price when it comes to transmissions... meaning it being 4k or 8k depending on what you get. I will need one to be 800+ rwhp to be safe and not over stress the transmission. with that being said I know where that falls on the side of pricing.... except for one of the above mentioned transmissions.... I would state what one it is, but i dont want any biases on what one you have experiences with...

thanks for the help y'all! you all have been a blessing recently with everything I have had trouble with!

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

I talked to NADP/NAPC in depth
I didn't like the fact they wouldn't give me a build sheet and their warranty plus border BS

I went with a Ford reman to get me by but check out SamWyse

what is their warranty, and what do you mean by border?

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

they are in canada

look at their website for current warranty duration

I think they have a good product but i got the feeling that they don't think any issue is their fault so they may fix it under warranty and call it goodwill but you're paying a lot of shipping and parking your ride for a few weeks

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

@Zmann, ah that is never fun to deal with by any means, and i looked into SamWyse and his are comparable to NADP, and i haven't read anything bad about them, to also add that he is an American company and a heck of a lot closer to Ky. also added into NADP i didnt see any warranty info on the site to be honest.

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

the NADP sites are confusing the NAPC is the same company http://www.napc.ca/pdf/FIN_WarrantyR...MAY15PRINT.pdf


sam Wyse is the way to go IMO
talk to @[email protected] he can give you his firsthand experience on Sams builds and warranty

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

We do installs also on top of carrying Sam's transmissions. He's honestly probably the best 5R trans builder out there. All his valve bodies and solenoids are flow tested on a Dyno for specific builds. We just need some info from you before the build starts if you decide to go with us.

I know he recently sent a couple 1000hp trans down to PSP Diesel for Art Martinez for his triple turbo shorty.

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

@[email protected], thats good to hear, it is gonna take some time to get the $$$ rounded up. i see y'all are out of ohio as well so that is about a 5hr drive. now out of curiosity, how much is a job like this running these days? and what all is with his trans (meaning torque converter, ect..) then what the R&R time frame?

Thanks Zack.

Re: Thoughts on a Performance Trans?

I charge $550 for R&R and that includes 5gal of Amsoil.

Trans does include a triple disk billet cover converter.

You can shoot me an email to [email protected] and I can give you the highlights of the builds and pricing. I can't remember exactly off hand.
