Tranny Order Question

For those of you who have ordered a BTS or John Wood tranny what goes into the order? Do you tell them what mods you have and what tires or is it just 7.3 engine and this is the tranny you get? Thanks guys.

Re: Tranny Order Question

Either of those guys will ask you what mods/power level you are at and what you plan to do with the truck.

Re: Tranny Order Question

AFAIK, all of the BTS trans are about the same with the exception of tuning the trans for your application. There are no different levels with BTS. The only time he cares about what you want to use it for and what power you make is when he is tuning the shifts for it.

AFAIK, his warranty is simple. Within 2 yrs, he pays for shipping. Outside of 2 yrs, you pay for it at his bulk rate. Either way, he fixes the trans for nothing.

Better to get the trans. I have it and don't have any worries about who is paying for it if I break it even in 5 years.

That depends. If you lie to him about what happened, he might not be so nice. After all, it's out of warranty so he isn't obligated to fix it for free (not incl s&h).
Be honest about it and he'll probably just do it for the price of parts, or free depending on what broke (not incl s&h).

Go ARMY!

If you jerk him around, well...... We are all like that. I will work with a customer if they don't jerk me around. In any case, there was someone who saw a trans that was there and they said they did maintenance on it but they didn't. That guy was saying that Brian should refuse to warranty it but Brian said he would anyways so that they don't think he was trying to welch out on it. Also, there was someone who saw Brian tell a kid that the next time the trans came back, it would be on his dime. Why? Because he was doing the old "Giddyup Back" on it and it broke.

My experience goes with John Wood. He will ask you what you will be using your truck for and the performance modifications you have done. He will not try and sell you anything you do not need. He is a very knowledgable person and great to work with. You will probably spend 30 minutes to a hour on the phone talking to him about transmissions, converters, and the 7.3. I learned much from my initial conversation with him.

I cannot get over how great my truck shifts. Much better than ever before. The harder I drive the truck, the firmer it shifts. I feel confident the transmission will last a very long time regardless of how hard I push it.

Looking at your location, BTS is closer by so that may be the better choice for you. John's shop is in So CA.
