Auto Trans options besides total rebuild

i have a friend that recently aquired a 2000 F350 Crew Long Auto with 113K miles
right now it is bone stock with the expection of a 4 inch TB Exhaust and Gauges
he is most likely goin to get a DP Tuner
but he was wondering what to do with the trans? he cant dump $4k into a built trans so what is a good road to go down?
We have a ATS Dealer 4 hours away so it would be nice to stay with them if they are quality
so which direction should i piont him?
convertor?
control box?
whats the co pilot option?
what about a upgraded valve body? what do they do?

Re: Auto Trans options besides total rebuild

A good aftermarket converter and a valve/spring kit or valve body and you should be good to go. I ran that set-up on my truck for a while with mini-me injectors and a 38r. It wasn't 'til I started using the nitrous that I needed the full built trans.

I have been running a Suncoast convertor and Transgo kit for around 3 yrs. that is with a full fuel system, hybrids, and a Garrett BB turbo.

Re: Auto Trans options besides total rebuild

so a good convertor and valve body upgrades will go a long ways then?
is there anything that will help with the free wheeling factor of an automatic besides an exhaust brake?

Re: Auto Trans options besides total rebuild

You can have Jody program the chip to keep the converter locked which will help slow the truck. You can also lock-out O/D on decel which will also help slow the truck. Those are about the only things you can do other than turn your EBPV into a brake or buy a real ex brake.

Re: Auto Trans options besides total rebuild

TransGo TuggerII reprogramming/valve body kit. This also has a optional mod that requires dropping the trans to drill out a passage for higher fluid flow. But if you're replacing the t/c no big deal. Try bulkpart.com or bulkparts.com, you can buy it online from them. last time I checked their website, the kit was about $120.

Re: Auto Trans options besides total rebuild

2nd the tugger kit... it will keep you from burning up the low/reverse clutch during compression braking in 1st and 2nd.

It reworks the vb's...
-but you have to pull the pump (need a slide hammer to do that)
-some mod's to the pump (I added a on/off lockup valve for the TC while I had it apart)
-upgraded coast clutch snapring
-upgraded overdrive clutch snap ring (I managed to get the spiral snap ring on the overdrive clutch with some serious patience a couple screw drivers and a bit of swearing) Otherwise, you need a special tool to compress the spring to do it.
